build videosI have a G20 coming and looked at these show and tell videos hoping for some real building. Through the magic of editing the building was mostly done off camera as if done by someone else and the parts appeared on the next step without much effort shown like one of those DIY shows on TV. This is a huge improvement over just using the instruction manual with drawings only so thank you for that! This is one of the better designed chassis I have seen and can't wait to get my hands on it. Having built several helicopters over the years before ARF and RTF and being a full scale Airframe mechanic for 30 years don't think I will have any trouble figuring out cleaning off the parts before applying red or blue loctite or putting on a jamb nut and banging off the prop adapter. As an instructional video however it would be more helpful for some of the younger viewers seeing some actual assembly being done, putting on ball links on one linkage rod how to hold it with plyers or a ball link tool and measuring one of them with calipers, heating up the prop adapter with a torch for 5 or more seconds and mounting it in the vice and showing how much of a hammer strike was actually needed with one, two or three blows etc.
Supporting the engine with one hand while hitting the jamb nut with the other. Why the special tool was made for the cluch installation is kind of a mystery still was it threaded on or pressed down over the drift pin?
