The Build


Since the only part I'm modifying is using a Cobra motor instead of a Volantex, I'm hoping this is a quick build.

I wound up having to order some screws for attaching the tail assembly, as they were missing from my kit. Also missing were the screws for connecting the servo horns, but I have some of those already in the shop.

edit: I didn't need the screws for the servo horns. Apparently this was for the version of the Phoenix 2400 pnp that got shipped out to early reviewers. My kit had the push-through type servo horns.
