Note: As with all kits, it’s a good idea to read all the instructions and study the parts before you begin
construction. Handle the parts of this kit with care so you do not damage any of the structure or
covering. Inspect all the parts for any shipping damage and report any issues to as soon as you can.
Make sure you have a flat and sturdy workbench and follow all safety advice for the tools and adhesives
you plan to use.
AIRCRAFT COVERING
1. With all ARFs, varying temperatures and storage delays can cause covering material to loosen over time and
transportation. We recommend lightly going over all the covering with a covering iron set at medium
temperatures. Be sure to use a soft cover over your iron so you do not scratch the covering surface. Be sure
you go over all seams and edges of the covering to assure it is secure to the airframe and other covering. Be
careful not to apply too much heat or you may cause bubbles or damage to the covering. A heat gun may
also be used along with a soft cotton cloth to shrink and adhere the covering. Again, be extremely careful
when using a heat gun.
2. Be sure to seal any exposed wood with a thin coating of epoxy to prevent engine oil from soaking in. This
is especially important around the engine compartment and servo openings with exposed areas.
3. Some modelers prefer to seal the hinge gaps using strips of appropriate covering or clear trim tape. We
have found this to be helpful with models intended for higher speed flight or models with unusually large
hinge gaps. Our aircraft utilize a very tight double beveled hinge line and do not normally require this step.
Sealing the hinge gaps is therefore left as an option for the modeler.

side of the fuselage.
3. Locate the slot for control horn on rudder, remove the covering over the slot with heated soldering iron or
sharp hobby knife, and make sure you do it on the right side of the aileron. Insert control horn into base plate
then into the slot, trace the edge of base plate with hobby knife then remove the underlying covering.
4. Use some fine sandpaper to roughen up the root of control horn where will be glued into the slot.
5. Fill the slot and coat the root of control horn and the bottom of base plate with 30 minute epoxy, insert the
horn into the slot, press it down firmly. Wipe off excessive epoxy with alcohol wipes. Set aside until cured.
Pre-hinged control surfaces
6. The rudder control surface is Pre-hingeds.
7. Cut the covering from the rudder servo slots from corner to corner and iron down inside the openings.
Connect servo wire extensions to your servos and secure the connections with the supplied clips. Feed the
servo wires into the fuselage. The screw holes for servo mounting are laser pre-drilled, it is advisable to
apply some thin CA to strengthen them, Install the servos and screw firmly in place.
8.
Use your radio to set the center of servo and then assemble and adjust the length of the control rod. The
servo arm should be as close to perpendicular to the control rod as possible while the aileron is at neutral.
Double check all screws, bolts and nuts to assure proper installation and operation without binding. Once
satisfied, permanently attach the ball links to the servo arms and horns with the supplied screw and nut.
9. We recommend using KUZA 1.5” aluminium CNC servo arm (sold separately) for rudder control.
LANDING GEAR ASSEMBLY
NOTE: There are pictures of different planes in this manual, however, this plane’s landing gear is assembled the
same way.
1. Locate the supplied main and tail wheel landing gear parts and sort them out on your workbench.
2. Locate the 2 fiberglass landing gear fairings and the black silicone tubing. Cut through one wall of the
tubing along the length. Press the tubing onto the edges of the fairing as shown and secure glue.
3. Bolt the main gear to the bottom of the fuselage using the supplied screws and stainless steel Self-locking
nuts. Place the bolts in through the can tunnel opening with appropriate size spanner. Remember the gear
will rake forward.
4. Adjust the position of the landing gear fairings, the secure with glue (shoe goo type).
5.Loosen out the inner nut, then apply thread lock to the axle. Tighten the nut back in place, allow the thread
locker to dry.
6. Install the main wheel axles to the composite landing gear and tighten the nylon-insert lock nut. Install one
wheel collar onto the axle. Use a second wheel collar as a guide to leave a gap on the inboard of the axle. Use
a small drop of thread-lock and tighten in place. Slide the wheel onto the axle and install a second wheel collar
also using thread-lock on the set screw.
7. Fit the wheel pant in place and install using the two supplied bolts and washers. Use thread-lock to secure
the bolts in place. Repeat the above steps for the other main gear.
8. The tail wheel installation is very simple, the factory has installed most of the accessories, see the below
picture.
9. Line up the caron fiber assembly onto the body of the aircrtaft and use the holes as a drill guide. Use a 2mm
drill bit as a pilot hole, then apply thin CA to harden the wood. Use the three self tapping screws and secure the
assembly into place.
10. Drill another 2mm pilot hole at the end of the rudder and apply thin CA. It needs to be in a position where
the spring is tensioned. Use a self tapping screw to secure in place.
11. The below is a picture of correctly installed tail wheel assembly.

For 30CC version,Engine, Exhaust, & Fuel System Installation
Engine Installation
NOTE: There are pictures of different planes in this manual, however, this plane’s engine is assembled the same
way.
1. Select the correct guide for your engine and drill the holes and cut out the center as indicated. Notice that the
engine center line is offset to the left to compensate for the right thrust built into the engine box.
2. Fit the Cowl and measure the distance from the engine bulkhead to the front of the cowl, add approx 2-3mm
for the back plate and this is the length that your engine should be set. Using the correct length stand offs,
mount your engine securely using bolts, washers, and locknuts. The use of thread-lock is also highly essential
for the engine bolts.
3. Mount the ignition module according to the manufacturer’s instructions. The best place to mount it is on the
side of the engine box. Secure the pickup lead and ignition wires with zip ties so that they do not vibrate or
touch any hot part of the engine or exhaust.
4. The following pictures show how to install a canister.
4. Assemble the throttle servo mount using the supplied laser cut parts or there is a servo cutout in the bottom
of the engine box for 28cc-38cc engines. Mount your throttle servo and complete your linkage setup. A hole
will need to be drilled on the firewall to allow the pushrod to connect to the throttle arm on the carb.
6. An extra servo can be fitted for choke or a mechanical linkage can be used.
7. The KUZA new 360cc fuel tank is preassembled. Complete the installation in the fuselage using zip ties or
velcro straps to hold the tank in position. Connect a fuel line between the tank and carb, a fuel line between the
tank vent and the bottom of the fuselage, and a fill line to a fueling port which can be mounted on the fuselage
side opposite your ignition switch. Make sure your vent line does not come close to any hot exhaust part such
as the muffler or canister. We recommend the use of small zip ties or fuel line clamps to secure the lines to the
tank.
A barb on the bottom of the fuselage can be fitted for the vent.
Installation of KUZA Fuel Dot and Fuel Vent Line Plug (Not included)
1. From June 2015 and on, all Goldwing gas airplanes are made ready for KUZA fuel dot and
vent line plug. Available in three colors: black, red and blue.
2. Installation of KUZA CNC Aluminum Fuel Dot
Sites for KUZA fuel dot installation are pre-cut on both sides of the fuselage, you may install it
on either side. Use shape knife to remove the covering.
Secure the housing of fuel dot with supplied 2.5 mm self-tapping screws, then plug and install
the fuel line to complete the setup of fuel dot.
3. Installation of KUZA CNC Aluminum Fuel Vent Line Plug
Similarly, two sites for vent line plug installation are available at the bottom of the fuselage.
Secure KUZA vent line plug with four 2.5 mm self-tapping screws as shown below.
120E Electric version Motor Installation
1. Find the washers for motor installation in the 120E version hardware package.There are 8 POM washers,and
16 ALU washers.
2.Blind nuts are pre-installed behind the firewall. Since the position of cowl is fixed and length of
motors varies, you may need to use provided washers to position you motor properly.
3. Fix the battery with both Velcro and straps.
COWLING INSTALLATION
NOTE: There are pictures of different planes in this manual, however, this plane’s cowling is assembled the
same way.
1. The cowl is secured with four 3 X 14mm bolts and washers.Apply nutlock onto the bolts as the vibration
from the gas engine will shake them come loose.
2. Labels are provided for aligning the drill holes for the cowl. Stick then on without the cowl, mark the hole.
Fit the cowl then press back down. The hole will then show the area to drill. Sere below.
FINAL RADIO SYSTEM INSTALLATION
Whether you use 72 MHz systems or the newer 2.4 GHz systems, correct radio installation and care is vital to
the safe and reliable operation of your aircraft. Follow the manufacturer’s instruction for installation guidance
of receivers and batteries paying attention to factors such as vibration isolation, adequate cooling, and
clearances.
1. Mount your receiver(s) securely in a location which provides a clean and maintenance free solution to
your setup. All servo wires should be neatly routed and secured in place so they will not come loose or
flop around during flight.
2. The fuselage ply sides provide space to mount your switches just below the canopy. Mount your
switches according to the manufacturer’s instructions and route your wires safely and securely as above.
3. Your receiver battery(s) can be mounted in a variety of locations depending on your balance needs.
Regardless of where you mount your batteries it is vital that they are very secure with no possibility of
coming loose. Use double sided Velcro to hold the batteries from sliding around and then use zip ties or
Velcro straps to secure them tightly in place.
4. Servo and battery leads are the life blood of your aircraft. Make sure all wires are top quality and
connectors are tight and display no loose pins or frayed wires. Servo clips are provided in the kit for
your convenience. These servo clips can even be glued to the wood structure using CA if desired.
5. Check all radio programming and control surface operations thoroughly before your initial flight. Check
your radio range according to the radio manufacturer’s instructions both with the engine off and running.
Balancing and Pre-Flight Checks
Most state of the art aerobatic aircraft allow for a wide margin for balancing depending on what level of
precision or freestyle flying the pilot prefers. To perform properly without being too pitch sensitive, you
must not go too aft on the CG. GoldWing RC recommends an initial CG setting of 108-126mm(4.25-5
inches) behind the leading edge of the wing at the root. More experienced pilots may want to set the
CG further aft for more 3D capability. Varying weights of engines and radio gear will dictate how you
should install each. The batteries can easily be located pretty much anywhere in the fuselage. For those
using a heavy engine, servo cutouts are provided in the rear of the fuselage for the rudder servos. These
options should allow you to balance the model without adding any weight.
Note: The best way to check your balance is to trim for level flight at about 1/2 to 3/4 throttle and then roll
inverted. The aircraft should maintain level flight with very little to no down elevator input. If the aircraft
climbs when inverted then you’ve probably got your CG too far aft. If the nose drops more than slightly, then
you are most likely nose heavy.

Final Assembly and Pre-Flight Inspections
1. Before arriving at your flying field, be sure all your batteries are properly charged and all radio systems are
in working order.
2, Installation of the rudder
The rudder is removable for convenience in transportation, it is connected to fuselage by inserting a 1.2 mm
steel rod through the hinge line.
Then install pull-pull ball links on control horns.
Hook up the tail wheel spring.
3.Installation of stab
Also the stab is removable for convenience in transportation,
Attach elevators with 3x12mm Hex-head bolts and 10mm PTFE washers. Check these after every flight.
4. Install the wings onto the fuselage being careful to align the wing tube with the wings and not force it. The
wing tube may be initially tight but will loosen after some with use. Guide your servo wires into the fuselage
openings and connect to the correct aileron channels. Servo clips are recommended. Once you have the wings
fully seated in the fuselage tighten the wing bolts inside the fuselage.
5.Side force generators Assembly.
Cut the wing film needed to be install the SFG. Fixed the SFG Use M3X18 hand bolts and balsa sheets.
Installation of the SFG is optional.
6. Fill your fuel tank making sure your vent line is not plugged or capped. With the canopy off, this is a good
time to check for any fuel leaks.
7. Check all control surfaces for secure hinges by performed a slight tug on the control surfaces and observing
if there is any give in the hinges. Check all control rods, ball links, servo screws, etc. for correct operation and
installation.
8. Check your batteries and perform a range check once again with the engine off and running. Be sure all
surfaces are moving in the correct direction and the correct amount for your flying setup.
9. You are now ready for your maiden flight! Good luck and enjoy your new aircraft! If you have any
comments or questions about this manual or the aircraft please email service@goldwingrc.com.
