Is the wing hard to get straight? I have been leaning towards the RCF models because of the foolproof wing glueing design. The telinks could get the wings messed up and not fly well if you don get it perfect.

I found it very easy on mine. I describe it fully on my thread on highalpha, but what I did basically was align the wing by measuring aileron tips to horizontal stabilizer tips like you would for any model, then i pinned the wing in place and glued just the top of the wing.Then I glued the front seam of the fuz.

At this point, the underside of the wing is not glued in to the fuz. You can slide the bottom of the wing left/right as needed to get the thing perpendicular to the fuselage, and parallel to the tail.

it's pretty easy, and not something to worry about at all. i certaintly would not let it put you off getting a telink kit.

(i have now built two telinks and two rc-factorys)

Thanks for the tips Slippy.

I have not yet glued the wing to the fuse, but gluing the wing halves together was very easy and simple to hold true to each other. The back half of the wings will lay flat on your workbench, and you can use that as reference plane when "sliding" them together, keeping an eye on the leading and trailing edges.

I have also built other similarly constructed Telinks, getting the wing to the fuse does require a little fit up and planning, but not a big deal.

I will go into a little detail on this at that point in the build for you.
