    OK I am concerned about the point where the wing joins to the inner wing that is permanently attached to the fuze.


    In doing a LIGHT test of the strength I heard popping and developed a crack (which is now on the outside of the wing and repaired).
    I picked up a 1/4" aluminumrod to run between those so hopefully it will correct it.


    Cannot stress enough that a 2nd spar should be used with the upgrade kit (the smaller holes) - I did not do this but I may go back and retro fit it.....
    I don't plan on putting any stress on this bird this time but a wind gust or something may put some stress on.....


    Think this may be a viable solution to distribute the stress.

    There is a second spar. It goes through the hole in the rear part of the new plates.

    It doesn't look like you have installed the 7mm rod here yet.

    I have not, so those are the 6" long spars? I have 3 of those including the original that came with the kit.


    There is not much of a receptacle for it to go into though, it will just be on foam when you slide the wing in?
