Now onto the first steps per the instructions from C&C models. They supply hard wood blocks with the Airframe. I decided to forgow the blocks and make up some aluminun L brackets from 6061 L stock. I drilled and tapped the brackets with 3mm Button head screws and used the supplied 3mm machine screws to mount the Savox 1270TG servos to the brackets.
