OK, here's the full build instructions (I'll do these in a series of posts).

First, prepare the wing spar channel by laying a piece of blue painters tape over the entire channel. Then flip the wing over and frame out the channel with blue tape.

Next, mix up enough 5-minute epoxy to fill the entire channel. Fill the channel with epoxy and insert the CF rod (I use 5mm OD tube). Press the CF firmly into the channel until the epoxy runs out, then scrape off the excess with a straight edge, like an old credit card.

Allow the epoxy to start setting up. Once it is sufficiently hard, but BEFORE it cures, peel the tape off both sides.
