Guys I'm going to use your build thread to help me build my X models 3.2. The one difference I noticed is that I don't have any trays or hardware. Even the tail plane installation looks identical but no hardware.

A question on the elevator. Is the design meant so it's removable? You only have to screw it down and you can remove it later? I see that you have a pin installed in front of it. Thanks!

Hi mnavarro

Yes, the elevator is designed to be removable. It has a pin for fixture in the front and a plastic screw to hold it down.

Can somebody tell me why do pull/pull cable when a thicker carbon push-rod will work fine (similar to elevator) I'll I see are problems with flutter unless you do a closed loop rudder.

In my case done as per manual. If flutter appears after first flights I will let you know and change to carbon rod.

This weekend I was able to finish the Graecalis. CG is set, programming done and wing bangs tailored.

I was hoping for some strong lift today. That wind didn't came so I took some photos of Graecalis instead. Maiden will be done next time.
