The model is powered by two 2820/14 motors in the front of the nacelles and by two 2212/34 motors in the rear of the nacelles.
sanding, brush on another coat of sealer. Some areas may need lightweight filler.
When the filler dries, sand it to prepare it for painting. Brush on one more coat of
sealer on all surfaces.
Glue the center pylon to the top of the hull and the F7 bulkhead. Glue the
stabilizer to the fin, smear epoxy glue onto the sponsons’ S1 rib and the carbon-fiber tubes, and then glue them to the hull sides and to the F6 and F8 bulkheads.
Glue the cockpit to the hull, and then glue the nacelles to the wing. Ensure
that the motor wires are pulled into the nacelles and out of the N2 and N3
Make the Cabane
First, make the four cabane struts—two for the front ( 31) and two for the rear
( 32). Bend them to the shape as shown on the first plans page. Take the electrical
lugs and bend the eye to roughly 90°. Slide the electrical lugs onto each strut and
insert each strut into the holes in the hardwood blocks ( 30).
Using scrap pieces of foam sheets, cut out a V-shape cradle so that the hull
can securely set in it at a 90° angle to the building board. Plug the wing panels
into the center section. Slide the wing onto the fuselage pylon. At the same time,
guide the cabane wires into the holes in the bottom of the wing.
Ensure that the wing is perpendicular to the hull at a positive angle of attack as
shown on the plans. If the holes are slightly misaligned, rebend the strut’s wires.
When the wing is aligned, slide the electrical lug until it touches the plywood
block ( 60) on the bottom of the wing. Make sure that the eye is positioned over
