Gotta add my welcome as well. Hobby Lobby got me started in R/C with a Scorpio Albatros D-V years ago. I've always had good dealings with H/L and found their advice useful. My only gripe is that the planes never fly as well for me as they do in their videos--and I know it CANT be due to my poor skills. They must have a magic schoolyard that helps high alpha and low fly-bys. My schoolyard thinks my planes do double duty as roto-tillers.
Seriously, on the few times I had a problem, they put it right. I know the regulars know this, but any noobs reading would do well to deal with H/L-they know electric flight well.

Look forward to seeing you guys at SEFF again this year.
Did you have any problem figuring out the instructions? Seems to me they leave a lot to be desired. Larry: samchamp@jetbroadband.com

Seemed pretty starightforward to me.

The one thing I thought was a bit unclear was the rudder and elevator control rod setup. I couldn't tell if they were calling for it to be cut and then glued to the carbon rod or jus glue the rod to it. I ended up just placing the CF rod next to metal pushrod and heast shrinking it together. It worked out well.

With the pushrod set up, there is no adjustments for trims, particularly on the ailerons.
