If the Hummingbird Controller is plugged in, unplug it and set it to the side.
Remove the tape from the back of the angler box.
On the lower-rear-horizontal tab, measure 1" in from both sides. Mark the measurements with lines.
On the lower-rear-horizontal tab, measure in 1 1/2" from the longer edge of the tab. Mark that measurement with a line.
The lines created in Step 3 and Step 4 will have created a rectangle on the end of the lower-rear-horizontal tab. Using your Xacto blade, carefully cut out and remove that rectangle.
Draw a mark on the lower-rear-horizontals hinge 1 3/4" in from the right hand wall. This will serve as a guide in a later step.
Unbox a servo. If there is a horn on the servo, use the precision screwdriver to remove the horn.
Cover the servo in tape. This will help protect the servo from the hot glue. Take special care to make sure the bottom of the servo is covered in tape.
Apply hot glue to the base of the servo.
Adhere the servo to the base of the angler box. Line up the corner of the servo with the hinge and the mark created in step 6.
Grab one of the 2 leftover tabs from when you created the angler. measure a 2 1/2" square from the tab.
Cut out the 2 1/2" square from the tab.
Find the center point along 1 edge of the square. At the center point, cut a little slot that is about 1/2" long. The slot should be slightly smaller than the width of a piece of cardbord.
Grab the final leftover tab. Draw fin on the tab. Be creative, but try to imagine how the tail will mount. If the lower section of the tail is too long, it may prevent the tail from moving.
Cut the tail from the tab.
Cut a slot on the side of the tail that will point toward the angler. This slot should have similar dimensions to the slot that was cut on Step 13.
Place the "X" servo horn on the 2 1/2" square. Make sure the "mounting" side of the servo horn is pointed up.
Adhere a small piece of tape to the cutting mat. cut a circle in the center of the tape. Now lift the tape from the mat. There should be a hole in the center of the tape.
Fit the hole in the tape over the mounting area of the "X" servo horn. Press the tape so that it is secured lightly over the horn and against the cardboard.
Fit the horn onto the servo. (Note: The servo may not be calibrated. During the programming phase, you may need to repeat this step, placing the horn onto the servo at a different angle)
Close the back of the angler and reseal it with tape.
Attach the tail by fitting the 2 slots together at 90 degrees.
