Hi Wing in Ground.Thanks mate for your comments .Appreciated and your are correct.I already have a high wing trainer and being a pilot of real aircraft I understand that the flight characteristics of the SE5 will be tricky . Having built many control line and free flight glow plug models when I was a kid this is a bit of nostalgia.Lets hope it gets more than one flight.Thanks for your help. John

Can someone tell me where the meatl wing spars hookup, My plane came with out the wooden pieces installed in the plane. I have a bag of them but I need the measurements. Any help would be great.

Feill around mono coat (skin) you can find the slots for the wood inserts Also make sure you trill fit all of them and put wings and metal spars in before gluing any thing.

from the wingtip measuring towards the fuselage on the bottom wing, the leading edge tab is 210mm in and 55mm back from the leading edge. the one behind it is in line with it and just in front of the aileron.

Can anyone tell me What the incidence is for the top and bottom wing, as my SE.5a flies like a pig
 RCpilotDude 2 points
not sure why you're asking with this particular aircraft but I'll give it my best. I own this plane and the bottom wing is installed flush with the fuselage and the wing incidence is therefore determined by the wing joiners and are factory set. The top wing is parallel to the bottom wing. I have noticed that the wings can become misaligned if the stringers are too tight. Don't tighten them down too much, just snug.

Modello arrivato in 2 settimane. Imballaggio perfetto e nessun danno. Il modello é ben fatto e ben costruito. Con piccole modifiche e accessori apparirà molto più "scale" che ora. Grazie e ciao
