Thanks everyone - I think I've got it cracked now - right wing first, tape
it.
Then, the big thing I've learnt is to feel inside the battery rack below
the
spars. I can now tell, by feel whether the second wing is too high or too
low
and knowing that makes all the difference.

Not the way I do it but if it works for you.... Practice is the most important thing. Enjoy your Ventus. I'm enjoying mine.

I put reference marks on the spar butt ends and inside the fuselage that indicate when the correct dihedral angle is achieved. I also using my index finger to feel for a mismatch between the main pin bushings while adjusting the height of the fuselage jack (start low and gradually go up). You can feel even the slightest misalignment.

..... Or you could swap it for a K6e, John. Never a problem to rigg, and
you
would get some change.
Keep smiling, Paul H

I've recently started flying a Ventus2. I can't rig the thing without a lot
of
struggle. The trouble is, there's a cover above the spars and you can't see

anything once the first wing is in.

I struggle to get the second wing to fit, never knowing whether it's a bit
too
high or a bit too low. The ground is uneven and sloping, which doesn't
help.

I hope some Ventus owners can give me some tips, please?
