    OMMENTS: Wings are equipped with dual aileron servo trays if dual aileron
    servos are desired. If you wish to use flaperons you will need to
    upgrade your radio system to 6 channels. The instruction manual
    list parts needed and information to perform these conversions.

    The metal straps described on page 13 for the engine mount are not
    included with the kit.

    If a replacement fuel tank is needed, an 8oz (240cc) tank like
    SULQ1739 can be used. Some minor modification may be needed as this
    is not the exact shape of the original tank

    *Because the .46LA dimensions are different than a bearinged engine,
    it will not work in this plane unless modifications are made. You
    will need a different engine mount. Depending on which engine
    mount is used, you may need to add aprox. 1/4" to 3/8" plywood
    to the firewall to extend the prop forward enough to keep it from
    contacting the fuselage.

    *If a Tower .46 is being used, you will need to use an muffler
    extension. The Dubro 699 Muffler Extension DUBG1319 will work fine.
