Safety Information
Flying models are not toys, and should only be operated by responsible clear thinking people. Assembling and maintaining models requires a basic level of technical skill, and a sensible logical
approach.
Any error in building, repairing or maintaining the model could
result in serious injury or damage. Technical problems or an incorrectly assembled model may lead to the propeller unexpectedly beginning to turn. Always stay out of the vicinity of rotating propellers
and never allow any item to come into contact with a spinning
prop. As neither the manufacturer or the dealer has any influence
over the way that models are operated they can accept no responsibility for and damage caused.
If this model is the first radio controlled model which you are attempting to build or fly, you should secure the assistance of an experienced model pilot. Your local dealer will be able to assist you
in locating your local model aircraft club or experienced pilots in
your area. NEVER fly your model over people and never operate the
model in way which may endanger people or animals. Before your
first flight you should conduct a range check of the radio control
system, secure the model to a solid object, and ensure that you
have full control of all functions with the antennae collapsed over a
distance of at least 25 metres. Before and after every flight inspect
the model for damage, and rectify any faults before you attempt to
take off. The operator is responsible for any damage caused by the
operation of flying models.

Furthermore, the following instructions must be followed:
- The kit contains small parts which may cause choking if
swallowed, keep away from small children.
- The model should not be changed in any way, doing so will
invalidate the guarantee.
- Never come into contact with rotating parts.
- Do not fly over wet ground or grass as water will damage the
models electrical components
- Do not expose the model or batteries to direct sunlight, always
keep them in the shade.
- Inspect the model before and after every flight for damage.
- Only ever fly the model if it is in perfect working order.
- The model can only be flown in good weather. Do not fly in wind,
rain or thunder storms.
- Find a place to fly which complies with any laws, and is free from
obstacles such as trees, houses or power cables.
- Remember that your model is made from such materials as
plastic and wood, and as such is inflammable. Keep it away from
any open flame, or high temperatures.
- When operating the model, switch on the transmitter first and
then the aircraft, switch off in the reverse order.
- Always ensure that the throttle stick is in the low position before
you switch on.
Always observe any local laws regarding the operation of model
aircraft.

Kit Contents:
• CNC LASER cut formers and ribs, strip wood, selected light
weight balsa sheet and aircraft grade plywood.
• Fitting kit including wheels, undercarriage, horns and hinges.
• Clear canopy.
• Instructions.
1. The motor mount is made of 2 x 1.5 mm plywood glued
together. The mounting holes (16/19 mm bolt circle) are from
the middle! Down thrust and train are build in the motor
mount. Later, the spinner is centered.
2. Have the 3 mm plywood rings with drive-in nuts ready.
3. Stick the plywood rings centred on the holes and tighten the
drive-in nuts carefully. Secured with a drop of glue.
4.
We recommend to put the motor mount together as shown,
so that the side with two slots is in flight direction left. This
will pre-set the camber and side pull to 2° (bottom/right).
3
5. The first fuselage frame is stuck to the motor mount. Before
this, place the spout into place and and fold over side pieces.
6. Stick the top cover in place.
7. The next two pieces of the fuselage frame are now stuck to
the battery hatch in a right angle. Leave to dry.
8. Now mount the rear fuselage frame. Slide the fuselage frame
right to back edge and glue in a right angle.
9. Make sure all parts are in a right angle
10. Arrange the wing supports. Make sure the drive-in nuts are
facing down.
4
11. Glue the wing support together and leave to dry.
12. Glue the undercarriage support and cockpit border at the top.
13. Glue the undercarriage wire support in place as shown.
14. The fuselage is prepared and glued.
Tip:
To avoid unnecessary edges, cover the edges and glue from the back with thin super glue to each other. Outbreaks may
remain.
15. Glue the fuselage side pieces to the fuselage frame..
16. Fit a 4 x 4 balsa bar to the upper edge so a radius can later be
sanded.
5
17. The next two fuselage frames are now placed between the
two side pieces and glued together.
Make sure they are straight!
18. If swimmers are mounted later on, the bottom fuselage cover
can be adjusted so that a second undercarriage wire can be
fitted later on.
19.
20. The images shows the front underside. Sand down the edge
slightly.
The rear fuselage upper part, elevator and the last little piece
of plywood frame are glued. Now cut 15mm long stripes
from 4 mm balsa and stick to the edges. These should overlap
and be sanded later.
Tip:
Start at the front. Make sure no deformations aprear and if
they do, correct them.
21. Glue 3 mm balsa strips on top
6
22. Sand the surface round..
23. 1.5 mm balsa strips are glued to the edges of the sides.
24. This pieces is sanded later on as well. Therefore lay out frame
1 and 2 with 4mm balsa.
25. Cover with 1.5 mm balsa.
26.
27.
Lay 6 mm balsa on the tail and only glue the front side to the
bulkhead. Equally so the end of fusealage from 6 mm balsa.
The gross form is secondary here, as the parts get their shape
by grinding.
It is recommended to apply a dummy empennage made of
4 mm balsa left overs before hand. It is only fit and reomved
later on. It will help you to correctly fix and determine the
empennage parts.
28. The tail incl. dummy empennage sanded.
7
29. After removing the dummy, the gaps in the empennage can
be seen.
30. The top cockpit section is glued with 1.5 mm balsa.
31. The sides of the window frame are glued with balsa.
32. Use 3 mm spring steel to shape the undercarriage
33.
34. Test…
8
If the bracket is installed and fixed to the plywood board, the
chassis side panels are made. A panel is formed from three
layers of balsa wood. In the middle boards you will find that
there is already a groove for the wire to be fitted in place.
35. … and adjust.
36. Finally, glue with 3 mm balsa to a “sandwich”.
37. If no rear wheel is added, we recommend to strengthen the
tail with 6 mm balsa.
38. Steering shaft and rudder shaft are aligned collinear. The wire
is guided through a piece bowden tube.
39. The elevator.
40. The rudder.
9
41. The two rudders are fitted together with a piece of spring
wire.
42. Sand the edges of the rudder.
43. In this case the elevator is fitted with a foil hindge and this is
the reason why the edges are only sanded on one side.
44. A groove is cut out in the back piece of the elevator. Insert the
wire and glue together. The wire should be able to move
freely.
45. The wing mount glued from 2 pcs of 1.5 mm plain plywood
46. Glue them together well.
10
47. Also the brackets are glued with two pcs. of plywood.
48. If the grooves of the ribs are aligned, two little noses will
show. These fit later on in rib R1.
49. Wing halfs made from balsa ribs (sequence R2 - R9) and
assembly of the bar.
50.
51. Some ribs are higher than the bar. These are later planked.
52. The servo supports are glued to the underside
Now the back bar is fitted
Tip:
The wing can be assembled on the plan but a line in
right-angle is efficient as well. Make sure to align the ribs
before glueing.
11
53. The landing flap bars are aligned.
54. The aileron panel at an oblique angle.
Tip:
To hang up the wing again to plan, the lower projection of
the aileron panel remove the same.
55. Glue the edges of the rudder to the bar.
56. Put a piece of 1.5 mm balsa under the first rib to make sure
the end bar is not move forward slightly.
57. Glue supports to the ribs.
58. The first third of the wing is now planked.
Tip:
Slide the wood right to the bar and glue to the bar.
12
59. Put a wet cloth on the outer wings so they can be formed
easier.
Tip:
Make sure all is aligned!
The underside has to lay on the plan until the glue is dried.
You may have to put weights on the opposite side. 1.5 mm
wood can be laid under the first rib to produce a cant.
60. The edges of the planking is sanded until you reach the ribs.
61. The next step is to plank the underside.
62. In the area of the wing screw, a end bar is applied to avoid
extruding.
63. Plank and sand the upper part.
64. Cut of the planking until you reach the first rib. Cut off with
approx 4 - 5 mm to the bar.
13
65.
Now the nose bar is glued. What is twisted now will stay like
this. With glueing the nose bar the wing will finally get its
stability. Before you start glueing, the wing needs to be fxed
to the building board.
66. Both wings are now sanded and are ready to be glued.
67. The wing bracket might have to be sanded and slided right in
the wing to fit the groove. It is efficient to use thin glue as
paste might not have enough room.
68. The other side is now pushed in and both are glued with
epoxy or paste.
Tip:
Make sure to glued edge to edge.
69. Der Randbogen wird 4 - 1/2 lagig aus 6 mm Balsa aufgebaut.
The tip is glued with 6 mm 4 - 1/2 layers.
70. Sand the edge.
14
71. Also sand the underside.
72.Polish.
73. Wings and fuselage can now be adjusted.
The upper part of the fuselage above the wing is part of the
balsa established.
74. Two rings made of plywood support the material surounding
the wing screws which are applied later.
75. Two holes are applied to the upper planking to have access to
the wing screws.
76. Cut out the aileron and flaps. Start at the end side.
15
77. Then along the bar between bar and rudder with
a utility knife to cut.
78. A rudder is created which can be fitted with hindge tape or
foil.
79. Overlaying rib pieces can now be sanded.
80. To avoid creases in the foil around the rudder, a frame is
created with 1.5 mm balsa.
After applying the covering foil, the frame can be cut-out
again and the rudder horn can be finally glued.
81. The surface shows the inside strut backwards.
The servo frame is applied to the wing.
82. The struts can be covered with balsa strips.
16
83. Three layers from 1.5 mm
84. Ready for sanding
85. Servo mounting
Cut the hole for the servo cover the servo shafts in the wings.
86. The servo cover should be installed .
The second option shows the servo cover for the flap servos.
87. The servo mountig for elevator and rudder servo
88. Example of installation with rear mounted engine.
