I just cant seem to sort out the lines on this thing, I've had it months now, just not worth the hassle anymore & the lack of instructions / tutorial on how to set it up doesn't help either so time for it go, I just cant be bothered with it anymore.

Hi, Can anyone help me in telling me the best way to set up the brake lines please this is the only thing stopping me now 7 in what position the servo arms have to be. Thanks

put control lines into silicone pipes. attach silicone pipes to aliminium holders (with vettical holes at both top sides. see pic 3 of trike above, turrn holder 90 degree ) using some adhesive tapes. arms must touch to lower end of those silicone pipes at top position and must go to all way down when pulled. Open foil against a medium size vantilator. let it inflate. control lines must be same lenght with others without ant additional strenght when arms at top position.

Would this be considered 1/4 scale or ????
 SelimTr 17 points
Between 1/6 and 1/8. But it is not a scale model of a real thing. it is designed for RC from the scratch.

This is a well designed and made kit. It was very easy to assemble, instructions are not needed. Take your time and enjoy the precision. I had no extra hardware so don't lose any. Assemble time for me was 2 hours and I was watching TV while I did it. I used the photo's to assemble it. You will need some needle nose pliers to get in the tight spaces. I'll be flying it this weekend and will follow-up with a flight report. Great Job HobbyKing!! Thanks!

There have been some comments that the new gondola (Beladog Design) does not come with any instructions on how to put it together. Well, it took me only about 8 hours or so for the complete build and I want to share some issues I encountered while doing so, together with more detailed pictures. Together with the gondola I ordered two servos Blue Bird BMS-630MG which fit perfectly. I already had a brushless outrunner Turnigy C3542-1000 and a 50A BEC. The pieces all came loose in a cardboard box secured with bubble wrap. Aircraft aluminum stamped and bent pieces have blue protective film on them that I removed first. Next use a suitable file and sandpaper to remove the sharp edges on the stamped pieces( don't skip this step). Bolts nuts and other hardware were included in separate plastic bags. Start with the U shaped bottom tray and install the landing gear. Strangely, the Allen bolts have a 2mm hex hole and a7/32" stop nut on the other end so you'll need Standard and Metric tools. When installing the front wheel note that a brass bushing goes on the side between wheel and strut as a spacer. Also, you will have to drill out the wheels to allow for the 5/32" diameter axles. Next install the largest piece of the kit, the slanted tower that holds motor, servos and fan attachments. The assembly on top of that tower is best built separately and then attached to the tower.

The absence of a drawing is negative point ,
you need the photos on the HK website to get everything at the right place.
This Trike is easy to be assembled ,the position of the drilled holes are perfectly and everything fits well together .
The Trike is constructed out of good quality Dural aluminium.
Use a bit of Loctite one all the nuts en bolds ,the Trike is producing a lot of vibration to all its components .
I have mounted the motor on 4 rubber flex mounts and this is having a positive effect on reducing the vibrations and noise of the Trike.
Its rock solid and can take a lot of abuse and crash landings .
With the HK chute this is a good flying combo.
One warning !If you fly to long and end up with a empty battery its flying like a brick ! then its if it falls from the sky,its not a floater !

Part 2: All the large frame aluminum parts are still covered with the surface blue protective tape. Very nicely punched as far as the resolution of the structural details that are required to help stiffen the lightweight aluminum. Exactly where required for the landing struts and the main body frame. Nicely engineered and my congratulations on getting it right. Now this is important as well. The edges after they were punched out are not sharp. I don't have any burrs or shards to catch my fingers. The press and punches at this point seem sharp and no stress on the material. I will likely file them slightly only because I like the esthetics of rounded corners. In the last bag are the 3 nice big tires, smooth rounded not tread type, of decent quality. The 2 velcro slotted straps for the battery etc are Turnigy, so are the blue denim silk-screened and expected good quality. Last is the kit also included the tubing pieces to put on the edges of the fiberglass propeller hoop. I also agree that a good mod is to add a small aluminum or fibre plate like the bottom one to the top of the loop that was recommended by Beladog in the forum.
