Default Cermark Tigershark ????

Picked up a Tigershark .60-.90 size ARF on a swap-meet this weekend. It came with a MVVS .61 engine and tuned pipe. This is a brand new ARF in the box, and so is the engine.
What should I consider when putting this plane together, and maiden it ? I think I have read something about the elevator servo setup modifications ? If somebody knows anything about this plane, please let me know. If you did any mods to it, I would appreciate some more info and pictures if possible (specially about the elevator servo setup).
Any tips and recommendations will be appreciated.
Thanks

If you look at the first pic, you can see the ply plate I added to the bottom of the stab. I also added one to the top that was cut to allow it to sit recessed in the fuse tail. The "high torque" servo sits upright, and protrudes through the bottom. I simply built a small shroud to cover it. The back "flourescent orange" you see is just a separate piece (to cover the opening) I covered brightly to use as billboard for my buddy "FlyBoy Dave". I won't tell you what it says!

Hole cut in horiz. stab, thin ply reinforcement, servo
rails bolted on, servo screwed to rails.

Ain't pretty....but the servo won't come loose....

There were. My back end is apparently different for earlier versions. I even had a set of modified directions.
