    assembly was pertty sitaiht forward.one thing that is a must with any prehinged ARF fist thing is to add extra pins to the hinges.I simply used tooth piks/CA them & a hand drill bit.the instruction manuals are vage.i installed a ST GS40.on the motor mount.thay in clude a off set engine bolck.but faile to inform you that when installing it.the mount hust be moved to the left to keep alinement of the spinner centerd.the wire landing gear is flimsy.i replaced it with a alum-and just drilled and taped the 1/2in play-block and its pertty good.also moved the rudder servo up behind the throttle to move some wt.froward and it reqired no extra nose wt with the ST40.flying the plane was verry up lifting as it peforms grate.take offs are effortless.it it is verry stable in the air.i flyit in 15 mile hr winds and it verry stable.it dose everything i can do at my skill.landinds are the most surpriseing.she will just about come to a slow almost to hover and make vertical landings.i highly recomend this one for a step up from trainers to tail driggers.Rich.I buy em. I build em I crash EM.I buy more DO you think I have the bug Rich Galveston TX;)
