            It will. Nice airplane. I just received mine today. Are you going to post photos of your build?

              I watched the channel. You both kept talking over each other so it was difficult to keep up. I live in Idaho, we always allow others to finish what they are saying. I know, you both have great skills. Maybe, I'm just too old-fashioned.

                That is the strangest adjustment point I've ever seen. I have a much finer way of mounting an electric motor.

Mounted receiver in front of elevator and rudder servos. This bird will be using a 6S 5000mah battery, plenty of room as you can see. This is not what the manufacturer recommends, Recommend 4S power, but as explained earlier, want more scale on prop size. We should not be lacking on power to fly this bird, and maybe long flight times. We are estimating around ten to twelve minutes or longer. Last thoughts from Papa: In all the wood planes I have built or assembled, this plane has been one of the most complete, excellent instruction manual, and least one I have had to redesign. Price is not bad either at $309.00 US. If you like the 1600 or 1700 foamy warbirds, and want to try and assemble your first balsa plane, NEXA models should be your choice. Good luck on your next balsa plane purchase, and I hope this helps answer your questions on what you should expect on assembling your plane. P. S. If you want to see more of these reviews send an e-mail to MOTION RC. Go to THE MERRY BOOZER RC CHANNEL on U-Tube and please subscribe and watch the maiden flight. THANK YOU! Papa, Wesley and Lori Boozer
                  Wow, they really haven't put much thought into the dynamics of this airplane. Way too much...

Use your hobby knife for this, you cannot go back to change if you do this wrong! Another tip, make sure that you are putting things correct for the right gear and left. You can get the parts backwards. The wheels come in tan, so if you do not like to paint, you can use sharpies in back and silver. Also, use your silver sharpie to paint strut attachments. Make sure strut attachments are free to travel up and down. I would recommend using a little tow in with the wheels. This will make her track straight down the runway. Wing is complete, on to the fuselage! So far no bad things to report, just using common sense where needed, and think before you assembly. All the building is done for you guys, she is a beauty.
                    Some really great ideas here for a more scale appearance. Thank you, Papa!

Lay the cover in position and mark mounting holes with a marker. Drill holes to install screws. The assembly is done, other than a few small things, like bomb, engine exhaust, machine guns, etc. We are on the way to installing the electronics. I also, thought this would be a good time to show all the tools that was used on this assembly.
                      Super. We just have to work on some of the spelling errors in the sentences. (like Bomb), should be, Like Bombs. Straightforward is one word in this sentence. Sorry, I'm anal when it comes to being correct. Besides, I cannot stand a social media platform. I always enjoy face-to-face conversations. I still made 3 errors. Do any English teachers out there want to quote?

                        Hello Papa Boozer 🙂

                        I have a question…

                        I bought the FMS 17x10 4 Blade propeller and would like to buy the matching spinner.
                        can I use the Spinner V3? does it fit?

                          Hello Manuel89 and welcome to the Squawk,

                          The V3 uses the same motor prop shaft and motor as the V2 so the spinner has the same threading, just a blue color instead of the old silver.
                          However, the V3 hub is different from the V2 whereas the 2 hole spacing on the V2 prop blade "may be" different than the V3.
                          I have the V2 bird along with extra hubs and the prop hole spacing "looks to be the same" as the V3.
                          Regards,
                          Warbird Charlie

                              Hello there. This is my first VQ model with lots of decals provided. From the looks of it, I have to cut the decal from the sheet and apply straight to the model, is this correct? The sheets appear to be adhesive sheets, not water slide decals.
