Default Patriot XL setup questions

Hello,

I am getting close of finishing my patriot XL. I will be using a Magnum 91 xls and I am going to use an Hitec Supreme receiver with two Y connectors as well as retracts (B.D). I have a few questions regarding the setup:

1) Since the servo wires from the ailerons and the flaps are quite long, are you using any kind of shielding on the wires?
2) Are you running the receiver antenna inside the fuselage without any problems?
3) Is the C.G indicated in the instruction manual the right one?
4) Where are the parts to build the instrument panel? I cannot seem to find them in the kit.

Thank you for your inputs,

Le fou

Here's how mine is set up:
1) No shielding; no issues.
2) I ran my antenna up front, across the fuselage, and back down the other side. All inside. Same receiver as you. No glitches.
3) Good for starters. I have moved mine back gradually. Takes off easiers. Flies fine. Landings are no problem.
4) Don't know. Mine didn't have a panel either.

Thank you SitNFly for your reply. What engine are you using? How fast is your plane going?

Thanks.

Engine is a Jett 90L. I'd estimate about 110-120 MPH, tops. The plane is a bit of a porker and has a lot of wing area. Fun to fly; just not a real screamer.
