Now fold as pictured so the paper secures itself together. Fold it around the bottom and then you can tape the flaps down, though this is not required but preferable.

Step 8: Winglets

 the instructions are not clear and useless

This is about as clear as it can get. Once more how are they "useless"? They show you how to make an excellent plane. If there is some part you don't understand, I can help you. If there is a step you feel could be elaborated on, please tell me and I'll see to it that it's revised.

You fold what you folded in Step 3 between the paper of the corner folds. :P

Useless instructions.
Please restructure the comments! Like you could elaborate on which side should be facing up etc.

I have explained all procedures in how to make this airplane. This step has three pictures and their notes covering them. This is very simple and if you use before and after context you can solve it.

I cannot make this step any simpler, sorry. 

Ok, well thanks anyway.
The planes look amazing!
Maybe I should just put a bit more time and effort into it!.. When I get time :)
