    Plane looks gorgeous and is well thought out. Building is pretty basic, few issues so far. Only exception is the landing gear, carbon strut, and wheel pants. The wheel pants are cheap plastic, the carbon strut is not pre drilled and no template is provided, for securing wheel pants or fastening the strut to the fuselage. Just a couple photos and a measurement picture for spacing of the fuselage bolts. A steady hand for.marking and a drill press would be the best bet. No blind nuts on the fuselage for the landing gear bolts, as you have to use the included security nuts. The pants also needed trimming for the excess plastic left from the molding process.

      Ok, this is the first bird I've put together like this. I can see in the body the large hole where the servo will mount. I am using the HITEC D930SW servos.

      My problem is that when I hold the servo up to that hole under the stabilizer I can tell by feel that where the wood starts and ends is longer than the servo. So I feel if I cut the coating away I will be left with a hole that is larger than the servo.

      NM: I figured it out. Cut a little piece and the MonoCoat and I could see there is extra wood sticking out to screw into.
