For my .02$ the build videos are priceless as a RC dummy. Gear build was not that tough in a vice but Josh must have HULK fingers to bend that wire ! Used a neat enforcement material around bottom of gear/top of wing/around wood dowel pin holes----->>Home Depot and Lowes has "counter top color chips" that are tough as nails and glue/epoxy up great. They are F R E E ! Can be cut with a tough pair of scissors or Dremel tool. Sand or rough up and glue away. Electronics is a different story for me as a former AB captain yikes. Bought a DX8G2 to grow into that for me needs a Dummy owners manual it has sooooo many settings. Thank god for youtube vids. Have not flown it yet but will very soon. Looking for next foamie now to build and grow as well as LED lights. BTW looks like the easiest way for me to pwr the LED's is to tap between the ESC and Batt. as my LED will not light at less than 5 vts. Any addition tips would be great thanks Jack !
