Can I CA it back on? Will it be strong enough to take loops, etc?

Anyone take the wing OFF the Champ yet? Is it glued on or taped or ??

Wasn't ready to start (re)building yet, but I'm out of choices...

Suggestions?

You can glue it back on, but its very likely to fail in the air next time. I would suggest adding a piece of carbon fiber rod under the wings to strengthen it back up if you do glue it. Make sure you use foam safe CA and foam safe accelerator on it too.

You can also get the wing by itself to replace:
