If cowlhead flies the plane you two better reinforce the wing tips for those sharp turns on landing

Great timing, this will be fun to follow. I'll be building one too for a friend next month. I look forward to following your build. Take a lot of pictures please.

Its amazing how quick the QB line goes together, but you will have to wait until tomorrow to see what was completed.

So is it done yet? JB and I built his QB Yak in a day - come on! What's taking so long???
FWIW there is a video out there already with one of these and a DA-85/RE3 pipe. If it balanced with that engine then you may be able to put some more stuff aft, like the rudder servo in the tail. If you use two rudder servos it might be a little tougher but might still be doable. AEroworks should have already put servo cutouts back there for you, too.
Just throwing that out there...

Nick I think we are going to go with your idea I think we will put two rudder servos in the tail and give it a go

The next step was to remove the parts from their nicely bubble wrapped packaging. Aeroworks also provides a nice CD with a seriously complete manual.

The first step in the manual is to iron down all of the covering, and seal the hinge gaps. We could only find 2 spots on the turtle deck that needed to be ironed down.

As with most people we got the fuse on her legs. With this plane it came with all of the hardware seperated into nice packages, so it takes all of that guess work out of it. The first thing you have to do is remove the landing gear plate cover that is held in place with two phillips wood screws. I would reccomend wicking some CA into the holes to harden the threads.

The landing gear comes lightened, and is high quality aluminum, the landing gear is painted and it even has the holes drilled for the wheel pants.

The landing gear plate has the locking blind nuts installed already. This makes installing the landing gear a snap. Inside the landing gear bag is the allen head bolts, and washers need to complete this step.

The next step we completed was installing the landing gear cuffs (don't know what to call them) axels, tires, and wheel pants. The wheel pants have the blind nuts pre installed, and the axels have slots for the wheel pants to set into. It takes all of the guess work out of trying to get the wheel pants straight and even with eachother. Again the hardware package is seperated for you.
