More 1/3 scale Sopwith Pup troubles

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I have been studying the plans and instructions on this Balsa USA Kit for several days and can not figure out what I should be doing with the flying wires.

The instructions say the ones from the top of the struts are double. First of all the plans only call for 2 tang e's and there are 4 strut tops. So do I need to have a tang e at the top of each strut?? Now how do I configure the wires?? By double dose it mean that there are 2 wires from the front tang e at the top of the front strut to tang b at the fuse, or one wire from tang e at the front strut to tang b and the other to tang a?? the plans seem to show the latter. But the photos with the instructions (very poor) seem to show the first???

Can anyone help with this one??

This pic may help. It certainly looks like the wires from the top of the outboard struts to the bottom of the fuse are doubled up.
