fitting and glueing the wing

After dry fitting the wing and checking aileron function, I'm ready to glue the wing on. The directions say to use thin CA and accelerator. I used medium CA and accelerator. I wasn't going to use CA at all but after thinking about it CA makes sense. If I ever need to remove the wing to reinstall servos I can probably pop the CA joint loose pretty cleanly, where Goop or Gorilla glue would most likely tear out a lot of foam in the process.
After gluing, there is about an 1/8th inch gap from where the wing saddle was but during manufacture. The instructions say to glue this gap. I chose to fill it with a piece of 1/8th inch plywood. It didn't add much weight and should stiffen up the bottom of the fuse nicely. Should be ready to fly soon.
