I posted and p/m'd him some tips that would apply to his construction, that I picked up on here and encouraged him to come here as well. I just don't think oldfart or Andrew visit rcuniverse.com that much - there's only so much time and too many forums. Some of the answers he's getting on there are (to put it delicately)... maybe not as accurate as you'd hope (not based on my experience, but based on what Phil or Andrew have answered on here vs what I read on there).

RCU is great and all that, and that's where I'll be posting my plank questions when mine comes in - but it's hard to beat a specialized site in its niche.

Welcome to Runryder

Here are the posts I was talking about re: the washer on top of the bearing, and the control rods and balls...

This was the one about the washer on top of the bearing instead of above the mast stopper...

http://runryder.com/showtopic.htm?s...ove+the+bearing

Look specificly for oldfart (phil) and bhelisn6 (andrew - century field rep) responses.


This was the one about the ball links being "handed" (look at the 1st reply where he talks about the Century logo on the links)...

http://runryder.com/showtopic.htm?s...ntury+ball+logo

These were about the control rods...

http://runryder.com/showtopic.htm?s...highlight=2.3mm

http://runryder.com/showtopic.htm?s...highlight=2.3mm

I've found this site to be a great "database" of info - I'm looking for a battery charger/cycler and did a search on different brands & keywords and found tons of good info (not to mention the kind PM replies when you follow up on someone's post about their experiences w/a charger etc.)

I bet if you did a search on "falcon" you'd find a ton of stuff to help you with the assembly instructions - or just post and someone will no doubt reply within hours (or minutes sometimes). And keep an eye out for Oldfart (phil), BHELISN6 (andrew), these guys are real Century gurus (not that others who have kindly replied to my questions are not, many are) but when you see these guys post take note

Good luck with the falcon!
Nick
