Default Firebird Freedom, Rear Landing gear?

Does anyone know how to install the rear wheel on this? I checked the manual and it only refers to the front.

Thanks in advance...

The rear wheel is attached by the same two bolts that hold the tail in place. Before you start, check carefully the angle of the tail compared to the fuselage rod; you want to return the tail to the same angle when you are done. Make sure that the wheel assembly is turned so that the wire holding the wheel is angled toward the rear (as if it was a caster), not to the front. Unscrew one of the screws, remove it, place the screw through the appropriate wire loop and replace the screw. Make the screw finger tight. Repeat for the other screw. Adjust the tail's angle to the frame by tighteneing and loosening the screws as needed until the tail is at the same angle as originally measured.

Thanks, that seemed obvious at first, but no picture on the box showed them installed.
