Hello kinundrum,
They are nearly RTF.
1. Glue wings/joining spars together.
2. Glue wings/ailerons and tail plane/elevator into fusalarge[rudd/elev comes hindged already]
3. Hookup linkage to ailerons[servos/battery-LiFe, already installed]
4. Hook up pull/pull string controls to elev/rudd[you can add the longer elev/rudd control horns if you like 1st]-makes it very twitchy--use lots of expo.
5. Add RX of your choise.
6. Set up the controls and radio as per Justins instructions[He will e-mail you the build/setup instructions after you buy them]
7. Check C of G--and away you go.

Its all seems a bit flippy/floppy--but works fine[its definately not for speed--fast walking/running pace is about flat out--this is for 3D flying, near the stall speed]
Which it does very well.

The control strings do not need to be too tight-just not loose[controls will flutter a bit if they are loose-though thats not really a problem even then]

Lot of lurning to handle them over next year.
Very maneuverable glider--but requires delicate management of airspeed[no motor to pull you out of trouble--LOL]
