Wings have screws under the bottom.

Generally, on the ESC thing.... let me take a run on it...

We have to be conservative... key point is that all servos are not equal. On an open stock ESC, we have to 'plan' for some of the less current friendly servos that are out there, and rate the ESC for what they are reasonably likely to meet in the field based on what the customer chooses.

In a BNF airplane, we use our own servos, which we know very well (and are fairly optimised for electrics), and test a very specific application (very rigorously, and with some headroom).
It is not unussual that we can use more servos than the 'open stock' general rating, and do it safely and effectively.

Have Fun,
