So what is covered in this video ?
The first part is introducing the hand tools, soldering tools, the glue needed for the assembly, followed by the equipement used, especially the servo, servo frames, batteries, wires, connectors. Paul is guiding us through the zero setting of the servos and the cycling of them, and an explanation of the typical setting/mixer that will be used on the radio. Then He is showing how works the lastest generation of servo frame and how to prepare them, with also some words on the LDS system.
Then come the discussion around wing servo installation in the wing, positioning, control rod, clevises, how to obtain the maximum throw and precision. Paul is then switching to the radio installation in the fuselage, battery soldering, antenna installation, servo tray, control rod end assembly. Before to enter in details in the plane settings (I liked his method to measure the deflection, very smart !), some words on the plane balancing.
The last minutes of the video are the preflight checking and some action at the field, hand catching, thermalling, winch, with a onboard camera.
Remember a good assembly means a reliable and performant plane that will bring you lots of flying hours, for sport flying or competition.
