I take back what I said!

Your comment made me curious and I decided to investigate inside the wing. I took off some covering and noticed MANY cracks starting to form. I almost would like to say that the wing would have come off on the next flight! I'm going to have to do some major reinforcements in this area. Originally, the wing would have withstood high forces, but the weakness comes from a fatigue standpoint. The cracks probably grew more and more after each flight. I also fly off a dirt field, so high speed takeoffs and landings probably do a good job breaking my wing too. I hope you didn't cut into your spar just yet!
