Is this your first airplane? I ask because if you've built a plane before, construction should be pretty intuitive. The GWS A-10 may not be the best choice for a first airplane.

What specifically are you having trouble with? Ask here, maybe someone will have a suggestion.

Yes it is my first build, and yes the instructions seem pretty intuitive, unfortunately my plane was actually slightly damaged out of the box, the plastic tubing required in step 2 doesnt seem to be long enough (for a 235mm, 200mm and 2mm piece). The english is fairly garbled as well with non descript pictures.

I have built many rc models before including numerous cars/trucks/submarines, maybe my mind isnt in the air yet

sorry if i come across as a newbie, because i am

doorag,

The tubing in my A-10 wasn't long enough either. I didn't notice it until after I cut the first piece. I installed it per the instructions. That left the 2nd piece slightly short but it made no difference. You should be able to use the shorter piece without any trouble.
If you haven't flown before, see if you can get someone to help you get the A-10 in the air. It flies like a trainer almost, but it is delicate and won't survive rough landings, crashes..etc. The good news is...with foamies you really have to hurt them to make them unrepairable. Just glue all the little pieces back together !

that is reassuring... i was about to take the kit back to the shop because I figured I was missing an entire tubing section.

Thanks for the help... I notice that the foam while strong is very fragile as part of the cockpit structure had broken off inside the box before I had even opened it.
