I think it was fairly easy...all of it. Yes it could have been more descriptive but it was easy. I admit, the fourth step could have been better but it just takes a little common sense...not that I have it, but...

What? I don't get why everyone is complaining about this. It was very simple to fold and follow, granted the pictures were pretty dark, but that's what the brightness setting is for on TVs and monitors... My 5 year old son was able to follow the pictures and fold this glider.. lol. It glides pretty nicely too.

I make in 10 minutes and it is great.I used a4 paper. I try to explane the difficult step. I hope my english is goed enough. If you lay down the plane as in the first picture in Step 4 Step 3;
Get a pensel make a dot about 5 mm from the left side down. and on the right site a dot from 35 mm. So you can draw a line about 30\degrees from left to right and fold down one site of the plane over the line to make a wing. Do the same at the other side but then the line from the right to the left.

I am sure if you can follow my explanation you will enjoy ur flying plane.

Consider re-writing these steps. It gets very confusing with the pictures and the lack of explanation. Thanks. Cool plane design though.
