In order to install the MIA Upgrade
TUFF LG, Boom Supports and Tail Rotor Fin Guard, the
Walkera 4G6 stock LG, front boom support screws, and tail rotor
guard needs to be removed.
Break off the G10 pieces from the parts
tree at the supporting part bridges. Clean the parts
before assembly, test fit the parts using the step by step
photos above, make sure you have a clear understanding how
the parts are oriented and assembled, then proceed to CA glue
all G10 part assembly joints, step by step.
The MIA TUFF LG has boom supports, are in much the same fashion as the
original frame, but the boom support rods must be
re-attached with the supplied MIA 3/16L Pan head screws
and 2 Nuts. Use a bit of Loctite or Rubber Contact cement,
on the nuts, to prevent them from loosening with use.
The bottom of the stock plastic frame
LG mounting holes need to be enlarged with the supplied
MIA Micro Drill bit, to accept MIA hardware easier.
The supplied 2 MIA aluminum spacers go on the rear of the
frames with the longest MIA 3/8" long Pan Head screws.
The 4 small MIA O-Rings go in the front of the LG
mounting, 2 per mounting screws installed with the small
MIA 1/4" Flat Head Screws. The screws will self thread
with a bit of tension, work each one at a time. Do the
strut installation after the strut support assembly is
fastened to the stock plastic frame.
The battery is simply tucked and held
with a bit of pressure from the front plastic strut and under the battery support.
Use 2 rubber bands at the front of the strut support plate
to further hold the battery in place. The battery can be adjusted for/aft for
adjustment of CG, the helicopter typically balances
directly under the center of the rotor head.
