    The construction of the wings is beautiful... 0 complaints. Love that Electron gear. Very nice machining, smooth operation, amazing brakes. Used a 4-plug TBolt connector - aileron, flap, retracts, brakes

    Negatives.. disappointing with the cost and precision of this kit that there is 0 details on servo arm length and linkage length. Also, no hardware supplied. Lastly, even though the gear was installed, there were no flat spots on the pins and no lock-tite used. Had to pull the gear and rebuild.

    Minor stuff but I expect better from such a high end and expensive kit.

    Elevator servos installed and linkages complete.

    I needed to make up a 1/4" plywood frame to raise the servos on the stock rib so that the servo arms lined up with the cutout in the skin.

    16mm - servo arm length
    98mm - linkage length

    Here is the paint scheme however we are not sure on the colours yet... likely different than the colours in the attachment.

    Looks good Trevor. Where are the flaps? Those look like huge ailerons for a jet.
