The M.20 will be included in the next several installments of the “MA Construction Series.” In keeping with the original intent of this series, the subject matter will focus on generally useful techniques rather than step-by-step instructions for this model.

For anyone in need of detailed building instructions for the M.20, a build log can be found on RCGroups at www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2306551.
