One thing we like to do with any plane is go over the glue joint just to make sure the joints are glued well and it just
makes sure nothing will break loose in future.

.

The carbon landing gear looks super nice the holes where pre drilled for mounting and wheel pants . (Make sure to use loctite all machine screws and grub screws throughout the build)

.

The tail wheel is also carbon fiber and super nice one thing we did is after we drill the holes for the tail is
take the screws back out and put a drop of CA in the holes so the screw do not back out and this also hardens
the wood around the screws.

I have the same plane (but just the V1). From the photo's, yours looks to have the bits of the wings between the ailerons and the fuse made as part of the wing, and not separately like mine was (had to glue mine in place), which alone is a nice upgrade.
From my own experience, watch the very fine points on the lightning bolt covering, mine peeled off by just looking at them too hard. If you have access to one of those covering seam sealer pens/sticks I've seen somewhere, I'd use it!
Glad you got all your stickers too, I had to custom cut the large 'SBACH 342' sticker on the wing, and correct the 'thuderbolt' aileron stickers to read 'thunderbolt' post a trip to the local sign writers for some adhesive vinyl film.
Despite that, I still found it a very enjoyable and rather easy build that made for a VERY nice final product IMO - so much so, I showed the finished product to a guy at the club, and he went out and brought exactly the same thing!

Here is one I prepared earlier!

Thanks for the heads up I use clear finger nail polish on the tips of monocote trim to keep it from peeling back. Thats one good looking plane you have there!

As will your be once your done! LOL!! (and thanks)

Also, if the bottom of the 'cockpit' is painted like mine, the paint my pilot figure was glued to fell off during the first run up of the motor. so if you put one in, take the time to remove the paint first - this is the outcome if you don't: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nIVp_F2FnQ4

Noticed that they are including enough servo arms (and hopefully horns) to run dual elevator servos, I had to buy servo arms and horns to run mine with twin servos!
Wondering if who ever packed mine at the factory did so on a Friday afternoon??

Next thing we did is notch out the elevators ruder and ailerons so it has little to none hing gap


then put together the carbon fiber control horns ( be sure to take of plastic covering on them as seen in the pic)


Measure the elevator on both side to get it lined up then mark lines down the fuse and cut out the covering and then measure to make sure it is square with fuse and then glue


then we took some Vaseline and applied to middle of the hinges to prevent glue locking them up and the loctite 5 min squeeze tube works great to get the epoxy into the holes without a mess

tail wheel assemble


servo installation

gluing SFG

assembling the gas tank

drilling holes for the motor mounts and throttle linkage
