    Tedious ,but I'm getting the servo's mounted!
    This plane did not have a rudder ,it was flown on only ailerons by bank turns ,so I had to cut
    a rudder an add hing & horn ,now I'm putting in the xtra servo!

    Congrats on your new plane! There’s nothing like the excitement of a plane.

    Being it is a foam plane, you can glue it back together with Gorilla Glue.

    My last 2 planes that I flown in the 90's were foamies ,back then ,packing tape an epoxy
    was your friend!....:cool:
    Got my Y wire in today ,I still have to fish it inside the wing & glue servo's in.
    The old set up was one servo on in the middle with flimsy wire which I don't think
    was very good ,so I moved the servo down to the aileron horn ,an using two!

    Heres some pics.

    I've used hot glue to fix my friends plane and it works really well. I like that it flows nicely and fills in the cracks. The nerves get me every time, but when you land successfully the feeling is so awesome.
