Here is my first Balsa ARF, From Phoenix - Pilatus Porter, purchased form a cool dude Praveen...Thanks Praveen for bringing in these ARF at low cost...
Packaging was perfect and in line...No damage...and best part is the detailed instruction book....
Some part are of not good quality..like
front landing gear metal part...all three broke while folding so now have to see how to fix the front landing gear..
Tail landing gear after fixing will be week and will break during landing if tail touches first..will find alternate way of putting the tail gear and will be best if found something to make it steerable.
Have done some changes to fix the two part wing and according to manual the two part need to fixed permanent. but i have change the plan and two parts can be removed for easy transportation.
will try to fix the 32mm steerable nose unit.
Some Pix :

BTW, What motor are you planning for her ? I guess suggested is AXI28... something... check with Ashish, he will let you know of the equivalent at HK.

Praveen,
it was not the rod but the part that broke was the metal struts use to fix the landing gear. actually i was going according to the manual and it said that the metal part needs to be bend to fix the landing gear. the way you have fixed is also good.

Nice looking model you got there  Drool . So Which motor and battery are you using?
Also can you provide another snap with the cowling removed?  I want to see how exactly your motor is fixed to the motor mount.

cheers

Hello Sandeep. Thanks for the reply. btw, you did this mod to get the CG right i suppose? can you also share the battery details like its Mah rating, weight etc.

I bought this plane last week  Grin couldn't resist... I noticed the H-stab and elevator are hinged with just a transparent tape. Was it same for you too? I believe this would not be enough and was thinking of adding a CA hinge. How's your elevator hinged?

i also had this model 2 yrs back, and it was hinged using tape only, there is no problem with tape, u dont need CA hinges. control surfaces is small so there is not much load on surface, so dont worry, if u want u can use clear tape on other side as well and that would be enough!!!! but be careful it should not restrict its movement!!!
