A few things to note before moving on. This plane comes pre-hinged with the exception of the rudder (like most kits this size). We know that some pilots prefer to hinge the plane as people have been concerned about throw, but all we can assure you, that is not the case here. Our factory has done a great job hinging those models and allowing our customers no limitation regarding deflection.

I started one morning with the intent of a complete build of my Aerobeez 26% Slick 540 ARF and maiden the next day! Keep in mind this ARF includes all the hardware and a plumbed ready fuel tank!

Everything was super secure and the main box was very thick. I laid out my basic build tools a cup of coffee and my build begins. So super excited to get the... more
