    delux telemaster 40 kit

    I am currently building telemaster 40, my first kit. The instructions are ok but cover nothing after pieces in box are glued together. Where can I find info on actually putting these sub assemblies together to form a completed aircraft? kit came with almost none of the hardware listed in the instructions. I have obtained hardware locally but can't find any reference to some of the applications, ie: what are the 8/32 nylon bolts and 2/56 blind nuts for? I have a basic idea of the covering process but some guidelines for this specific model would also be appreciated.

    Re: delux telemaster 40 kit

    You bring up some good points that I am going to have to address. While none of these steps is difficult, they are not necessarily intuitive for a novice to RC models.

    To speed this process up for you, I suggest that you contact me at HL. Mike Hines ext. 207

    About the hardware. In the first run of the kit we didn't have a check off list of the hardware provided. This has been corrected in the second run. The other point of confusion was the "Hardware Key" in the instructions. It is a generic key to help identify parts, the problem arises because not all of the items shown are necessary or included in the kit. The items that you asked about 8-32 nylon bolts and 2-56 blind nuts are not items used in this kit.

    You should have received these HARDWARE ITEMS for the first run of TEL1400 Telemaster 40 Deluxe

    Thanks for your purchase and your suggestions for improvment
