I'm not sure how to fix this but the directions recommended putting a thin layer of glue on the hinge so I did. I thought well if one side recommended the other side would be better. Umm...not really. Now my hinge joints are very tight and dont seem to want to move much even after flexing them quite a bit. Any ideas on how to resolve this?

I will say I'm very excited to get this bird in the air after reading this thread. I'm a decent park flier and this is my first 3Der. Heck prior to this summer the last time I flew an RC plan 3D flying wasn't heard of.
If you haven't put it together yet. Just take the hinges and fold them all back and lay a book on each one. Let them sit for a couple hours they will loosen up some. My father did the samew thing on his build and that solved it.
