Default Volantex Ranger - Build Log

A while back i started building the Ranger the plane is almost done now and some detailing and fine tuning is needed

This is the hardware i have used:









Everything else is stock and came with the plane.

Things i have done that are not in the instructions:

* installed CA hinges on the plane.
* Laminated wings, vertical/horizontal stabilizer and canopy.
* Put clear protection tape on the bottom of the fuselage, the automotive kind that is supposed to protect the car's paint. (very tough).
* Installed locking nuts on the the inside of the wheels axle instead of normal nuts that came with the kit.
* The locking nut that was supposed to secure the prop on the motor would not fit or screw on so i replaced it with 3 normal nuts.
* Made a tray for the battery to sit on securely with velcro.
* Put yellow/black warning tape on the plane.
* Taped the servos.

I have balanced the plane for the maiden to come @ 70mm from the leading edge

I guess i have bought a wrong battery since its heavy and the whole plane weights around 1400gr (Is that too bad ?)

Now what is left is how and where to place and secure the FrSKY antennas.

Any ideas, recommendations, suggestions you have and if you spot something i did wrong in the photos please let me know.
