My original F3 Building Clinic, which came out in 2005, has been one of the best-selling r/c soaring instructional videos of all time. While this video is still relevant, time and technology and marches on. Our gliders have evolved to insane performance levels, the electronic gear available is amazing, and my personal glider building skills have reached a new level. The new F3X Building Clinic training video will help you update your modeling skills bringing you up to speed on the latest assembly techniques, radio technology, power systems and other technologies current to 2015 and beyond.

In this highly detaiIed 2.6 hour video I build a NAN Xplorer 2.5 F3J glider to exacting standards using the latest High Voltage MKS coreless and brushless servos, bearing support frames, a high capacity custom Li-ion battery pack and a custom light-weight wiring harness. You will learn all of the vital steps and skills required to do a pristine and professional build of any modern glider kit for maximum performance and reliability.

You'll also learn proper soldering techniques with acid-free materials, learn how to use a HV-rated servo driver to speed up servo installations, and how to build a 2S battery pack with the new high capacity Li-ion cells which I will be installing in the X2. I also teach you how to build a minimal weight wire harness and how to make your own servo connectors with pins and crimp tool. 

For the wing servos I'm using some new bearing support frames and I show you how to assemble and install them so you get the right pushrod geometry. I also show you how to position the flap servos for the best mechanical advantage and total throws so you can maximize your landing flap angles. The MKS 6255 brushless flap servos are quiet and massivley strong and with our frame set up, they will not 'blow back' under heavy launch camber loads.

For the fuselage, I show you how to optimize the elevator system so you get all of the available resolution out of the servo and how to get the pushrods at the proper angles. I make a custom carbon servo tray and offset the servos to get that perfect pushrod angle while running the clevis on the inside of the servo horns. To finish the cockpit, I show you how to install a Zepsus magnetic switch, clean up the wiring and install the 2.4 antennas in the right positions. After some radio programming and pre-flighting, its off to the field for some range tests and first test flights.


Even veteran builders will learn some new tricks and for those of you new to plane building, this training video will keep you from making a lot of rookie mistakes that could cost you your model. Thanks to our sponsors soaringusa.com and mksservosusa.com for helping make this program possible.

If you really want to learn all you can about building, maintaining, and optimizing your gliders, I highly recommend getting the Glider Tech Lab to go along with the F3X Clinic.
