Rudder control horn installation.

Remove the covering (I use soldering iron for this to prevent scoring the balsa)

Glue (with gorilla glue) and align properly. Note that properly aligned, the holes should match up. You can run a ruler and it'll match up. That ensures equal throws.

More horn installation:

On the elevator and ailerons, you'll have to trim the control horn to use the first hole. I use either a Dremmel or pliers / nail clipper and sandpaper.

I use an old soldering iron to remove the covering. It makes for clean and neat install in the process.

Threading the servo extension through. The string included in the kit really helps and cuts down on the frustration of trying to thread the wire through all the ribs on the wing.

I predrill my servo holes with the smallest drill bit I have. It's a habit carried over from the OR .

LG / Wheel Install

Note the notch on the wheel pants. It makes lining up the WP a breeze, just like installing them on the smaller models.

Tighten the collar as pictured, and then install the whole thing to the LG (just like how you'd do it with the 47" or 55" planes.

This is how I tighten the screw and nut together on the LG plate.

My lovely assistant helping here . Please note how tall the LG is on the 89" Slick

Cannister tunnel

Note the 4 holes at the bottom of the motor box. I eventually connected those with a Dremmel to turn it into a cooling hole.

GR 70 Installation


Installing the GR 70 on the Slick is a breeze. Scott has a mounting plate that templates with the DA50 template. So all you have to do is line up the DA drilling template, drill the 4 holes, and that's IT!

As for installing it, I first loosely install all of the standoff, then tighten them sequentially.

I also sheeted the battery tray as to make the flow more laminar there and ensure that all the air goes through the battery. So far it's kept my batt cool and very happy.

Cooling slots

In addition to the hole in the bottom, I also glued a scoop together.

Before and after pics.

I blazed through the radio install, so I didn't shoot any pics, but they're rather identical to the 87" SHP's install since both use the same hardware.
