The wings assembly is quite straightforward.

Install all 4 servo in their covers using the supplied hardware. I add a string of Sikaflex silicon glue to the servo strap to improve the servo fastening.

 

 

Place the servos into their pockets. Additional trimming might be required at the servo cable exit location. Drill the wing at the cover holes location. Place the pushrods on the servo arms and fasten the servo covers on the wing.

 

 

Check the position of the control horn slots into the flaps and ailerons. They should match the position of the pushrods. Routing the slots might be necessary if they appear too short.

Scuff the control horns and make a few drills in the gluing area. Identify the proper horn shape before placing them on the wing.

Aileron control horn:

 

Flap control horn:

 

Rudder control horn:

 

Glue the horns in their respective slots with Hysol E20HP.

Once the glue has cured, place the pushrods and set them up to ensure that the control is at zero with the servo arm at 90 degrees from the pushrod.

Place the wing loom in position.

Route an oval slot in the wing root to allow the positioning of the EWC6 connector.

Slide the wing tube into the fuselage/ boom assembly. Center it

Place the wings in position onto the booms and fuselage. Make sure that then are a snug fit.

Drill a hole through the wing fasteners holes and the wing tube The drill bit should be 2,5 mm.

Remove the wings and tap the wing tube at M3.

Refit the wings and verify that the M3 socket head crew fit correctly.

Drill a 2.5 mm hole into the main fuselage bulkhead through the wing sleeve and wing tube.

Tap the wing tube at M3 and redrill the bulkhead/ sleeve at 3 mm.

Place a M3 socket head crew into the bulkhead to fasten the tube from the center.
