Default Hinges on maxford gee bee y

Hey all . I just recieved a maxford gee bee y and upon inspection I noticed all hinges are not done . Is this normal for an arf model. Any info would be great.

Thanks

Well, I contacted the company and apparently they don't come pre hinged anymore. Thanks to all those who commented on this subject.

It is quite normal for control surfaces on BALSA models and some foam ARF's NOT to have the hinges glued in. I think the reasoning is that it is easier to set the servos (especially if you are using "z" bends at BOTH ends!! LOL) up if the control surface is not glued. Saves money on the manufacturing end also.
