7. Bullet Connectors, Heat Shrink Tubes, Wheel Stop colliers, Servo Extn Leads and nut bolts for LG mounting.
These are the additional things required other than the items supplied with the kit.











1. Opening the box.


 2. Checking the shipment for all parts and accessories.


 3. Modifications.
  • Adding 3mm carbon fiber tube in vertical fin for additional strengthening.


 4. Attaching the canopy hold down ply strips.

 5. Cutting out access windows for APM board and other electronics.
 6. Servo for Camera pan/tilt assembly.
 7. Elevator and Rudder servo fitment and arranging the cables..


 8. Mode 2 - Adding additional 3mm carbon fiber tube in horizontal stab.

9. Mode 3 - Adding 2 more carbon fiber tubes to main fuselage in wing leading edge and trailing edge lines and one in fuselage bottom forward section to take rough landing shocks from main LG..


 10. Mode 4 - Wiring an additional servo extension cable to tail plane for future modifications.


 11. Aileron servo fitment.


12. Fix all servos,
wire additional lines for future modifications,
attach all carbon fiber tubes,
apply the decals supplied with the kit or your own decals,
apply foam safe glue provided in the kit along the full fuselage paste line and gently press the fuselage together,
leave the fuselage for glue drying. 
Use paper tape to hold the parts in place and remove after glue dried.






 13. Make the main LG from a 2 mm aluminium sheet.
The width and height can be derided by yourself.
My dimensions are 330 mm wheel track and 150 mm height.

  • Cut out bottom side fuselage as per the LG size and attach the hand made LG to that slot apply foam safe glue or epoxy glue(Araldite), allow the glue to dry.
  • Use the cut out portion to cover the bottom inside part of LG.


14. Motor Fitment.


15. Battery and APM Tray

16. Strengthening the horizontal stabilizer with 3mm carbon fiber tubes.
