    Took some pictures of all the radio and the rest off the stuff that needed to be installed into the fuselage. It's all in its correct locations and did the balance check all is good the balances mid point so all is good. Please note nothing has been IMG_1513.JPG IMG_1514.JPG IMG_1515.JPG IMG_1516.JPG tidied up just put things in there location to see how the balance looked. Next need to secure everything and clean up the wiring.
    One picture is looking forward towards the engine showing the air box and ignition .
    Second picture is IBec and the tank.
    Third picture is receiver and the smartfly unit.
    And the last is the receiver in the back.

    The next thing that needs to be done is get the radio set up. Get it all working right and program all the little extras that I like to use. When all that is done some later in the year check the fuel system and do the final setup of the engine. Once every thing is ok clean up the wiring.

    Keep seeing @orthobird setting his plane up with a laser. Spent some time with my flying buddy the other day described the use of a laser. Let's just say I know him for many years and up today were is not a tool that I have mentioned that he does not have. He walks to other end of his shop pulls out four lasers. He looks at them, take these two see which one you like. The end result is the one is definitely better for what we do than the second one . Anyway using a laser on an ARF will scare the hell out of you. Anyway 8 hours later the plane is square, straight and level. And the plane looked good before with standard tape measurements. One setting up the plane deflections on the ailerons and elevators made life very easy. Love the machine and if possible he is never getting it back. (I wish). Love the laser will be finding out the cost and getting my self one it does make life easier.

    Just cleaning up the workshop and found all the decals for the plane, forgot about them. Have to install some of the decals clean up the wiring and then assemble the plane and take a couple of pictures. And then hope for good weather.

    So the use of the laser really made a difference compared to standard type techniques? Will be interesting to see how yours does flying and seeing how straight it flies. Please let us know.

    I did not buy it but tomorrow I will take some pictures and ask my friend if can remember where he bought it.
    Yes we do have Home Depot but do not know which lasers they carry if any.
