I like to use large size Popsicle sticks/ tongue depressors to reinforce things and add strength to places that will be under stress.

I cut small pieces of CA hinge about 1/4' X3/4" and pin them so they don't go in to far. with a small drop of Ca to hold them in.
The stabilizer is fitted and glued in place.
The wing is now dry. I cut 1 1/2" strip ailerons. I will later reinforce the center section of the wing.
Now I attach the fin/rudder section.
1/4" plywood is used to attach the wing. more details to follow
I use the large tongue depressor sticks for reinforcement. You buy them in the craft department at Walmart or any craft store. Also plywood for holding down battery hatch.
