But thanks for the link Owl, my limited deutsch reading gave me ideas anyway, especially pod free AUW, the plan has an excellent pod setup, in fact, looking a the kit tonight it is a nice piece o' gear overall. Dunno if I will go the flaps but, meh..

So it's not a woody strictly speaking, not an ARF, and not a mouldie, so I don't know what it is just yet. It could be crap, but then again!

someone shoot that squirell in the bottom left.

Sorry, Steve. I haven't heard of it, either. Good luck building it!



Owl, that's exactly what I ended up doing. With the aid of a small half-round file and the (bladeless) handle of my X-Acto knife, I discovered a thin film of Gorilla Glue in one hole (now how'd that get in there?), and that the other hole was indeed slightly flattened. The handle fit very nicely, and acted as a sort of mandrel. The wing halves are quite snug still, but are easy to insert and remove without breaking anything.

The job of fixing the holes done so quickly, I figured I'd have a little fun. I snagged the RX and battery from my GL, and hooked up the electronics in the ASK, excluding the motor. It liiiiiives! The servos are NOISY, gently buzzing as they sit still, and really talk when they're moving. Every last one of them was reversed, even the SLS pod, and couldn't get it to lift. I took it all apart, pulled the RX from the Radian, threw it in the ASK "fixit box", and went to bed. More monkeying around later. I think, once I un-reverse the pod (on the "gear" channel), it'll raise and lower normally. I hope. I need a charger for the LiPo battery, so I can FLY.

I congratulate KPV on his decade of non-participation.
