Mike
I do not have that model but I would say the spare two wire plug is for powering your lights as they only need two wires to power them, it would be plugged into a spare channel on your Rx but before you plug it in check that the black wire is the same as your other plugs.

Sorry Mike ,Ian my wife is in hospital so have not been near the web site. I have ordered springs Mike  they arrive tomorrow...   The black and white wire is for the red strobe light   

I had one hell of a problem with the flap servo screws in wings...Some  very stupid servo worker tightened the very cheap servo screws so tight even my  snap on screw drivers could not loosen them...   Got them out and replaced .....flaps now working..   will plug landing lights into gear y lead so that when I switch flaps they will come on...
Might not get to the club for a while guys.   Depends on how quickly my wife recovers from an op....

Sorry to hear about your wife. Just you forget about RC Stuff just now, and help her get better.

Thank you much appreciated.  It takes my mind off things. 
Hope the build goes well.  Lovely kit spoilt a little bit by cheap accessories,    but for us master craftsmen no problem

I wrote to the CEO of HobbyKing,   to complain re my issue of no help from them,  re my missing springs for my Grand Tundra.. It was not their fault but I was getting no back up from them.. Although USA had contacted the manufacturer..
I sent that  email last night         -this morning was phoned by the assistant to the CEO who has instructed the UK warehouse to open a kit and post them immediately.  Had a long chat with her and she invited me to a flyin at the Norfolk warehouse in September to fly .They have RC and fullsize flying from their own runway.
I know you get first class service from Dave Wilshere but you don't expect the CEO of an international company to email me and sort it out within minutes ..  Pretty impressive

Hope they pay yer airfare 😃

They have a Skype meeting first thing international.   He worked in HKing Norfolk Uk.   Used to own a model shop in Norfolk uk which may or may not have been Galaxy Models. I think he had work experience there and became accountant and now taken over from the guy (forget name ) co -founder who now is high   Back seat in the board of Directors.

The springs came today.

Guess what.     More springs from HobbyKing.  Delivered today.     I think I have cleaned out Europe.   Quite impressed though. Al
