Got some work done yesterday

I removed the covering film from the elevator servo, wing bolts, horizontal stabilizer, wing tube, anti rotation pin, pull pull servo cables, and landing gear.
On the wing tube I used a heated safety pin, came out perfect .
I finished the landing gear and the wheel pants.

Looks good itai. I’m almost done building mine (red one)
But I noticed that you missed the 2 washers that supposed to be installed under the 10mm M3 bolts keeping the landing gear legs attached to the fuselage.

I’m still waiting for the Thrust 30 out-Runner motor and replacement double pull-pull servo arm. ( I hate that easy connector for pull-pull rudder design )

thats right, its a good idea to put the washers on the LG, and also remember to put them on the motor mount, it will help spread the load over all the area.

I did not want to mount the tail wheel on the rudder. I wanted to prevent shocks and vibration during landings and transport to the rudder So I Modified the tail wheel.
I used the original tail wheel that was supplied by precision aerobatics and I added a strip of aluminum that i fitted with two screws that hold it in place at the end of the fuselage. Then I fitted a small tube on the wire, glued with epoxy and I drilled a hole and penetrated into the fuselage. using the same method of the z bend bind the spring to the wheel using a piece of string soak it with thin CA and allow it to dry.
I glued a short peace of plastic tube to the rudder and inserted the end of the spring to it. Works great' weight is 2 gr.
