be careful assembling the struts to wings, I had a screw go into the wing,where the strut mounts about 3 threads, then the screw insert in the wing started turning within its mount. talked to Hobbico, they are sending me a new wing though....

Didn't like that too, it was hard to screw in place so took it out and started again very slowly and it went well .
Took it out again and re-installed with a drop of silicone adhesive to make shure I dont loose in the wing.
When you look at the screw it doesn't look like a screw to take a nut but a screw for plastic .

You guys used the screws and not the bolts for the wings/strut attachments? Its a metal nut inside the wing that takes the two supplied bolts.

Hey, at least your honest about it. How many people would try and say that this is exactly what they did and it still didn't work. LOL.

Oil the bolt, and slowly rework it into the threads. That might help.
