Tiny X building questions
This is my 2nd plane(1st IFO) and my first balsa plane . This is most likely a dumb question but when it says pin down the parts it does not mean stick pins through the wood right?
Any tips would be greatly appreciated .

That's right, stick pins on either side of the wood to kind of brace it in place. It's not a dumb question, people read stuff like that and do pin right through the wood, but that weakens the structure quite a bit.

Put the pins at the edge of the wood, away from the glue joints
as best you can. Alternating pins on each side of a piece will give you good position control. I avoid sticking pins in the wood because it will weaken small parts and will often split sticks like the 1/8 square that Tiny uses.
Good luck with your first kit and Happy flying!
