Building basics:

Remember your goal here is to build light (don't slop on heavy glues and over do paint as weight is not your friend ) you are shooting to build a plane under 7oz here.

A few of the Best tips are

1. don't use any type of glue to hold servos in place they are just held in by cutting the foam a little smaller then the servo and taping them in place with some small pieces of strapping tape.

2. I use Hot glue to attach my control horns.

3. Motor mount is just held in place with tape.

4. Attach your speed controller to the fuselage with a drop of hot glue.

5. use a strip of velcro that holds the battery in place just big enough to hold the pack. my strip is only 1/2 inch by 4 inches it does not need to be as big as the whole pack (velcro is stronger then you think)

6. I use becon foam tac glue now to glue in all my carbon rods (glue dries clear and is very flexible) and wont break or crack in a crash, and won't turn yellow with time.
