All you experienced modelers are well aware of this but for us noobs think about how your going to route the wiring.... after the skins are on.

Retracts fitted. Now the two ply triangular packing pieces are not part of the kit. I have had issues with the retracts at my field which is hard and a bit lumpy in places. The spring coils help but I had the retract top plate being broken away from the unit on finding a rough patch. Supporting the lower part of the mechanism seems to help a lot and has dramatically reduced occurrence of damage.

Maybe a grass roller might help!

Glued in place, make sure that the holes are aligned.

Okay..... retracts, these have a packing piece between the retract and retract plate.

Had a thought we should consider the Future Undermining of Chinese Monopoly. (F.U.C.M.) angel

Sitting here contemplating my navel, removing the toast crumbs, what with the main uk suppliers not currently able to source balsa.

I think we need to enjoy the kits we have. It may be a long time before we see many more.

Covid-19, balsa shortage, the Chinese aren't my favourites at the moment......

Really.... calling the boys muppets?

Considering they are in your support bubble... you have nowhere to hide......

Nice alternative Ron. There so many types available your spoilt for choice. A bit of extra work to start with but I consider worth it.

I have watched others trying to sort which connection goes where as there previously pre marked labels had come off smiley

This is one of my models which uses this type of plug.

Whilst thinking about sheeting I realised the retract unit would need the wiring to pass forward of the main spar and the aileron wiring behind it. This is a personal preference but I like all the wings wiring routed through one exit. Usually because I i use a single D type connector creating a single plug in point. It's a tidy solution without having to plug individual servos into the receiver.

Therefore I place a small oval hole in the main spar where it is already reinforced with the retract plate.
