My first scratch build

Just came in the mail. The possibilities contained in that little bag are staggering. If everything goes to plan, by this weekend I should be on my way to destroying my first r/c aircraft!

OK Knuckles McNasty, lets get you built!

looks like a good list, so long as you don't miss the unmentioneds, like battery connectors, butllet connectors and male-male servo wires.
