Default Any words of wisdom on the Patriot ARF?

Is there anything that should be/must be done that isn't covered in the instructions, or anything thing that shouldn't be done?

Comments appreciated.
Thanks,
Jim

I had one in the box it had a bunch of vacuum form bits to cut out and glue on. Sold it a few years ago, still in the box.

Well it's not really a speed plane, although it may be a quick plane. So among those who hang out here regularly maybe the chance of hitting an experienced Patriot ARF owner is not so great. Dunno. Activity here has been fairly light of late too.. not sure why.

The Patriot ARF arrived today.......I see what you mean about plastic parts Guess I expected too much, didn't expect a plastic wrapped framework.

Gonna assemble it and see how long it lasts.......planned on a Rossi 53, but with all the plastic the 53 may be too much.

After taking a long look at the Pat ARF, I have some "words of wisdom" for those looking for a quick and easy way to get a sorta fast plane in the air;

"I see why the model wasn't on the market long..............."
