I fixed the wing problem with an elastic band that goes through the CF rod spar, with a knot tied at each end that slides into a slotted square of balsa plywood. It won't pull the wings back together if they separate by an inch, but it does keep them in the slot so the plane still flies.

I went flying today - or should I say crashing. The wind was fairly strong and gusty. That combined with my complete inexperience in trimming, flying, finding the CG, etc, caused quite a few crashes. I must say I'm impressed, though: the only things that were even remotely broken were the nose and one of the ailerons that fell off. For six or seven crashes straight into the ground, followed by crashing into a tree and having sticks and rocks thrown at it for a good half an hour, this thing held up pretty amazingly.
