Clear for the plates
Silver in the ball holes

watch for the upper arms, it puts the inner sliding bit the wrong way round, the long end is away from the servo, not towards as it shows.

Hi,
I'm waiting for my F109 and I'd like to get the f109 manual now. Do anyone have the manual in pdf? Could you share it, please?

Although the manual has it's flaws, I have to admit it is still one of the nicest manuals that I've seen. I can't wait to get this thing on the rug.

Only option I can see needed is the F104 rear diff corner and axle, so you can change a wheel without having to remove the thrust bearing and washers.

I guess those bodies which fits F104, could be try as well on F109, as we can see with the photo took from above.

Need to be careful though, the F104 body tapers in a lot when you use the separate sidepods. The F109 is a lot wider at the rear. F104 below:

Might be ok if you don't use the separate sidepods so the body is wider at the rear but it will still be very close...
