Ditto. Am just completing the CMP DH2 Beaver (electrified). Have always had a soft spot in my heart for the Beaver.

It has been very easy to put together so far. The most tedious part has been installing the hinges for the opening doors, but it's not bad, just takes a little care.

The opening doors are the hardest part of the whole build, but they are not that hard. You just need to take a little time to line up the hinges correctly.

The pushrods for the elevators are carbon fiber, I glued the metal ends in with JB Weld.

The wings are really easy, you just need to glue the hinges, install the horns and servos.
