Hey all,
I just bought the Thuder Tiger Ready mk3 kit . The instructions that come with the kit are quite confusing.
If any of you have built this model before, or even have it with you now, please reply to this thread. I have some doubts which i need help with.

1) mounting the aileron servo:i glued the servo rails S and SS to the servo well. Have drilled holes (3 mm) thru them to accommodate the servo. However, later i read in the futaba manual about rubber grommet and brass eyelet. Could you share photos of the servos you've mounted (as many and close-up as possible) so i can mount the servos?

2) The nose wheel/front landing gear: instructions were very cloudy about this. I also believe i might be missing some parts > i installed part B (dunno name, but in the kit it's called so) at the front. I also have the nose gear, wheel , wheel stopper .Please share photo of
 a) which screw you've used to lock the nose gear into nose gear steering arm(part F)
 b) what you've used to block the nose wheel form falling out (I think it's wheel collar, but what screw/bolt goes into that?
 c) close up photo of other two rear wheels as well. Even here, i didn't undertand what arrangement to use to prevent wheel from slipping out.

Attaching servo mount pics

nose wheel mounting - it seems you have followed the manual
 for locking the nose gear steering arm to the nose gear leg - there should be a grub
screw - 3mm-4mm with allen head

for retaining the nose wheel use a metal retainer - the one supplied in the kit is a plastic one
and will not last

rear wheels use the long 3 mm bolts with the head side out - put the wheels thru and thread thru the
main gear legs.

will attach pics tomorrow if you are unclear

Attaching servo mount pics
>Thx that helped
nose wheel mounting - it seems you have followed the manual
 for locking the nose gear steering arm to the nose gear leg - there should be a grub
screw - 3mm-4mm with allen head
>i do see 4 grub screws: 1 big, 3small. however, they're open on one end-no allen head.
for retaining the nose wheel use a metal retainer - the one supplied in the kit is a plastic one
and will not last
>ok. If i can source one from a hardware store, will that be ok? or would you advise any other source
rear wheels use the long 3 mm bolts with the head side out - put the wheels thru and thread thru the
main gear legs.
> i think i've glued the wrong size nut on to the rear landing gear legs. Any idea how i can undo the super glue (and replace with right size nut) ?
will attach pics tomorrow if you are unclear
> please attach pics, if it's not too much to ask. and please take more of a close up this time:)

>also, I'm almost done and a few parts don't seem to fit anywhere else. Like: 2 nuts (the smallest of the lot), 4 large wood screws, two screw threads (no head, just thin long threaded thingys)
Are these meant for the tank mounting (only thing i haven't done)
Please excuse me for not using the proper technical terms. I don't know their names.

From the last - four wood screws is for mounting the engine

the thin threaded rods is for your elevator push rod - for fine adjustment of clevis.

the rest - wait for some time - i'll take pics

Last Sunday, I saw a TT ready crash at jakkur. Half the wing had broken off. When I saw inside, it was nothing but a thin layer of plastic stuffed with moulded thermacoal. The thermacoal had broken with little pressure from the crash. Wondering why TT guys didnt fill this up with EPP. Looks like they wanted more business than quality   Wink

I dont think its an Ideal Beginners plane as one would get the opinion of. BTW how ever such brakes can be easily fixed by putting a thick CF tube and epoxy it back. Better than balsa I guess for beginners. Smiley

Vinay,
thanks for the input. But i've already bought mine and am almost done finishing it. Let's hope for the best. Hopefully I won't get to see the insides of my plane  Wink
