    2013 1880 Skywalker build

    Excited to get it together, hope to get the bench cleaned off tonight and get to work!

    My first unboxing video the gopro shut off, I think I hit a button on accident, so here was round two minus the bubble wrap!

    Hey John I have a couple of pics for you if your interested. I cut a little hole in the tail boom and ran my VTX wires along with the elevator and rudder wires in the carbon tube. My picture is crystal clear out past 4miles and it helps with seperation from the RX.

    considering permanently glueing the tail tube into the orange holders, was checking how tight the screws were and stripped one already. That or maybe use something other than those screws, not sure yet...

    My first move was to braid the servo wires coming from the front to the servos and I also consolidated the wires and ran the pos and neg together. Basiclly I have 4 servo wires going into the tube 2 signal, 1 pos, 1 neg then at the servo side I just tapped from the two and split for each servo and I had my daughter braid them together for RFI purpose.

    Tail is glueing, Ive read people do not glue the wing together to transport, I like this idea, trying to figure out the best way to trim the spar slot foam pieces, they are taller than the channel they fit into, if I sand off the bottom the spar hole will be too small...
