    As I recall (this was 18 months ago), the CC instructions are okay. The 
problem is that there are so many danged parts and trying to get all the 
parts assembled takes awhile. I can put a C31XR together in about six hours; 
I think the X9 was over ten. 

    We had the booms and all the elements assembled for an X( and C31XR and 
started attaching the elements to the boom. I had just finished the second X9 
element and the guy putting the C31XR together was DONE!

    I don't remember any real problems. Have you looked at the instructions? 
(CC just has drawings but they work FB.) You can download the instructions 
from their website if you want to take a look at them.
