as of yesterday, that hasn't been confirmed

this is still a pre-prod kit so there still a couple of kitting decisions to be made in regards to things like a puller, clunks, t fittings, vents, fittings,etc

you'll need some sort of puller eventually though, the one shown is the std Zenoah puller

Will the kit contain a clutch or will we have to supply one? I have an RC260 that I got without the clutch. Will I need to buy a clutch to go with this motor?

I don't believe it is going to come with the clutch shoes. It will come with the starter yoke and spacers though. The rest of the clutch parts needed are std zenoah clutch bolts/washers

Thanks for the reply. May I confirm what else is needed to complete the kit. Electronics(servos, receiver, etc), muffler, main and tail blades. Anything else

Yep. It'll come as an airframe kit, minus what you have mentioned. You'll also need the usual building supplies, thread locking compound, grease, Tri-Flow oil, etc.

Thanks for your prompt reply. Two more questions; what size main blades and tail blades and do you have a recommendation as to which blades to use. Right now I'm a sport flyer, no 3d yet but getting there.

Carey, In "Chassis - Step 10" you mention Step 2 and gas tank assembly. I don't believe I see this vid in your posted lineup. What gives?

By the way, thanks for cranking these vids out so fast.

I am doing the photo narratives before doing the video narratives.

To be honest I managed to damage the fuel feed fitting (which is a custom part) while I was filming the tank re-assembly so I needed another fitting from the factory.

Chassis Step 2 will be finished next week and put into the build threads and the playlist on my youtube channel

Unless something else consumes my time, I expect to finish most of the build in the coming week.

Building the model literally doesn't take very long. Editing photos and video takes much longer

fyi - I did get the fuel tank narrative you requested posted and quite a few more. Only about 3 of these left to have fully completed the model construction to the point of setup

Very nice presentation. It seems a straight forward build. Any update on the delivery time? What size is the blade root(14 or 15mm)?

14mm x 5mm hole

I can't predict production time but I would imagine within the next coupla months. It shares a large number of parts with the electric and nitro and those are starting to ramp up in production

Its really very easy to build, I think one could be built from nothing in four hours or so if you had all the parts, components and tools laid out in a well organized way.
