Included in the kit were 2 pieces of aluminum approx 4" long and 3/8" wide with a hole drilled in one end, I could find no mention of their use in the instructions. Also enclosed were what look like formers for the tail boom, one large and one small, again I could find no mention in the instructions. The instructions say to shim the boom with foam. The fuse arrived with 2 bad places, one in the white and one in the red I need to know what paint brand to touch up.

Thanks.....Dave

hi. the 2 aluminum pieces are basically an upper mounting point for your mechanics. they get screwed to the upper lip of the main fuse to a ply plate that you have to glue in, and they attatch to the top of you mechanics.

the two foam shims are different, you wither use one or the other, depending on your mechanics. i dont have my manual ont me right now (its at the shop) so i cant tell you exactly which is which...im sure someone can though...

as for the paint, i have no idea.

I didn't use the formers for the tail boom, nor the 2 pieces of aluminum. Shimmed the boom at the T/R gearbox with foam.
The fuse arrived with 2 bad places, one in the white and one in the red I need to know what paint brand to touch up.
Can't help you there. Let me suggest you call Century or contact a Rep with this one.

I would use them as braces as there suppose to. The bottom of the fuse is very thin and needs a bit of help. It can help also if heli vibs at spool up. I put mine into a "Z" shape and have it mounted each side where the boom is clamped. It acts like a shock abzorber on the horizontal axis. I drilled a small hole at the other ends and when the top cover goes on 2 longer screws are used and the screws go tru the cover then the body then the brace. Nice and secure.

I would not attempt to touch up the paint. You should not have to and it would be hard to get it anywhere near what it was.

Use hard foam rubber cut to shape and inserted around the tail end. There is a mod to do that can hard mount it but I did not like that idea. With the right foam and put in right it will not move about.

Thanks for the info. I have to touch up the fuselage the paint has came loose all the way down to the glass in two different spots. one spot I caused and the other happened in shipping. I gotta figure a way to touch them up.

Thanks Again.....Dave
