Thanks for that. I'll print out the manual, luckily I bought new cartridges.
Yes I thought they were out on the red one too. When I first ordered the plane they told me via e-mail I can choose from only three colors, yellow, green and white. After all the drama with overcharged PP account they canceled my 1st order. When I reordered the plane I chose the color red again. This time the order went through without any issues.

This is not a complicated plane. What do you need the instructions for? I built mine without ever looking at the instructions. Ever build from plans? They rarely come with instructions!

Yeah, I've built a few and most all come with instructions. There's absolutely nothing wrong with instructions. If there's a preferred way to assemble something, it's ludicrous to do it twice.

Only two things.
What is the size of the extensions of the servos?
To take control of flap/spoiler should I use Y cable or two extensions?
Jan 01, 2011, 07:55 AM
the answer 42 is
Hey sergio

if you have a programable radio the use two chanels otherwise you have to make a Y and control both servos with one chanel. And those are Flaperons no flap/spoilers

good luck with the build

That's right, flaperon.

I will use a Turnigy 9X, then buy two extensions is better.

What is the length of them?

Hi Miles Away!

Thanks for the link!

Wow, I didn't know that Staufenbiel sells this plane. That's good news because I know Staufenbiel is renowned seller.
Here is a nice video from Airmix:

Thanks for that Miles away. They have suggested control throws which is helpful as a starting point. Unfortunately, my German language skills are very poor but one can struggle through with a translator.

This glider is remarkably worth it's price.

I find it very easy to handle and it behave almost like a big F3J al regarding thermal

I am very happy with it.
