I have the same issue. Apparently they already knew it happened and have sent the rest in the post.

Right, here we go, but before I get started, A big thanks to DeAgostini for sorting the problem with the first delivery.. Right, my build. The final parts of part 1 arrived this morning, and it didn't take me long to dive in and get started.. The actual build starts with stage 2 as only the Pininfarina logo from stage 1 is used, this is located on the right side of the body in the three holes already drilled, 3 snap rings are pushed onto the pegs on the inside, this completes stage 1.
Stage 3 is the rotor arm hinge and the sidebar, The pin hinge was found to be quite tight( at least it can't fall out) A pin hammer and an ally block was used to install the pin... The sidebar has 2 caps to fit in the end, just a push fit.
Stage 4, the undercarriage, or at least the one side of it, with this stage a red orientation ball needs attaching with a small screw supplied in stage 3. And the sidebar is inserted and held in with 2 grub screws also part of stage 3.Put away safe until needed at a later stage..
Stage 5, the final stage for this month, the front rotor guard, just a case of clipping the 2 supplied parts together. Well that was quick and easy for now, I know it will get more involved as the ancillaries are built and stored..... CANT WAIT....

Great to see you have got started, the parts look like there are to the usual DeAgostini high standard.

Now start the long slow wait until the next delivery BigGrin

It may be a bit of a wait till the next pack, but that gives me time to build the aircraft im working on, and go out flying the other one. I won,t get much chance when the drone is done, as I will want to get that out earning its keep.. Bob.

Stage 8: The Red LED,s on the end of the arm just worked on. Place disk in the recess, locating the pin at the top, place frosted cover in place and screw down with 2 12mill long screws. I have put the arm cover on loosely so as not to loose any parts..

Anti-clockwise rotor..Only the outside caseing of the motor is supplied in this pack, the rotor, or propeller, whatever you wish to call it is supplied in pack 1, and is attached to the motor caseing with a black NUT, AS THIS IS ANTI-CLOCKWISE, the CLOCKWISE rotors use silver nuts.. This concludes Pack 2..

Nice work!

I nearly started pack 2 Monday but I decided to wait until I have one of those things to balance the propeller first.

Did you balance your propeller?
