Construction / tuning:

Unpacking this little plane was a pleasure! All individual items were
wrapped in foil and secured in place within the box. No damages, no
dents....!

Although this plane must have rested in the shelf of the shop for quite
some time (judging from the black dust that had accumulated on the box
and was wiped away from the shop assistant before he could show me
the content).

After unwrapping all and checking that all parts were straight, I needed to
change the plugs on the provided geared motor (180 brushed size). This
time I decided to go with the stock setup... let's see.

Next all connections to the BEC needed to be soldered (I still had a 20 A
BEC controller my drawers... I know, to powerful and too big... but little
money in the pocked made my decision easy.

All installatiions (and there was just the rc equipment) was made
according to the manual - no changes - except:

The steel for the wheels was too heavy for my taste, so I replaced it with
a same dia GFK rod, and saved 25 g!

And finally, there was a surprise, the screw to fix the prop cap was
missing and in all of my boxes I could not find a fitting one. So, on the
pictures you still see this plane without his tip! Sorry for that.
