Things you already know!

Building, assembling, maintaining and flying RC models Involves lots of small detail's and tricks that you learn along he way, here is a small list of things you already know:

  • Models are hand made and hand made items are rarely ever perfect.
  • You appreciate the high skill level and dedication it takes to build models for sale.
  • You raise your flaps before you touch down. EVERY TIME!
  • That if you pre tape the wing joint and lay new tape over that you will never pull the paint or covering loose.
  • Wire must be clean to solder to.
  • Batteries need to be cycled and checked every other month. TX too!
  • Your charger has text!
  • There is a difference between a landing and a crash.
  • You program your TX and center all sub trims and flight modes before you start assembly.
  • Top drive flaps work great when you get the geometry correct.
  • You sand the mold release out of the wing pocket before you glue the servos in place.
  • You sand the servo case before you epoxy them in.
  • You put the wing joiner fully in the TIP first on 3-piece wings.
  • It's not a sin to sand your joiners to fit in the wings easily.
  • Control throws are just a starting guide. You define the finished throws.
  • Same for CG.
  • If it takes a really long time and lots of glue to do something you are probably doing it wrong.
  • All linkages are straight.
  • You listen to the guys doing it better than you are.
  • Z bends are Bad Ass! Use a Z bend pliers.
