Default Need Instructions for building a Slow Stick

I've spent hours trying to desciper the instructions that came with my slow stick. I'm a beginner and everyone said what a simple model this was to build, however, the translation from Chinese to English has me twirling in circles and learning new curse words. Someone mentioned that there were good instructions posted somewhere on the Internet for putting the Slow Stick together, however I've been unable to find them. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Wow. Now that is what the GWS manual should read like.

GWS assembly instructions bring a new meaning to "Lost in translation".

Nice link. Thanks for posting it Robert.

You may want to add something that shows how with most light weight brushless outrunner setups you need to put the battery holders infront of the front wing mount to get the correct CoG.

Gee, You know what is really scary? The GWS instructions are starting to make sense to me. Worse than that, their glue is beginning to taste good too!
