I was asked off forum to do an assembly thread on this aircraft so here goes.
For today I just got everything ironed so tomorrow will be some actual assembly. Pics are of delivery, out of box, and unwrapped.

Well, I reallysuck, out of practice I guess as I got up early this morning and began banging out the assembly. And as of right now everything is done with exception of mounting the engine and installing the rx and battery. And I did not take one pic. So once I figure out how I'm going to mount this NGH 38cc four stroke, I'll mount it. It is a beam mount and I don't like beam for an engine like this so thinking of getting some aluminum plate and making an engine back plate for stand-offs.

Well, it is a simple ARF. The hardest part so far was engine mounting, partly due to I did not like it being a beam mount, but today I caved and mounted it. I still need to fasten the wing servos in place, hook up the engine, and check balance as the moveable items are laid in place. Probably finish it up tomorrow.
