I am in a temporary apartment and don't have any real tools or workspace but decided to start putting my glider together anyway seeing as how it's so cheap, I can afford to make some mistakes - and I did.

I have no instructions but with a little thinking about it, the parts just kind of put themselves together. The fuselage was a no brainer and the pieces fit great.

I have no jig but the wing went together pretty easily though I messed up the LE and decided to remedy it with a piece of balsa I had to cut to add to the LE, and then to leave off the wing sheeting on the LE. The wing will still be very strong because I put in a carbon fiber slat wingspar and I am going to be using laminating film to cover.
Just need to do some sanding.

Have all major components assembled and comes out to about 110 grams without electronics.

Now if they had only sent me the other wing.

(Please note that I am working in china so do not know if or how this may be available in US.)
I got this 160rmb dlg balsa kit in china on taobao.com with no instructions.
Think I have figured out where all the parts go from looking at the picture. Just not sure how far the fiberglass boom goes inside the fuselage. i can figure out the cg. Will use copy shop laminate to cover I think. Can hardly go wrong for the price.
Pretty complete kit, even a couple magnets for the hatch.

Have started building the fuselage, going together nicely.
