When using the metal wing bolts, make sure to check them EVERY flight. Mine have gotten loose and I've lost a wing twice. One good way of preventing that and still keeping them easily removable is to cut a small disk of sandpaper and put it on the wingbolt. It stops them from coming loose but it's not as permanent as Loktite.
You can also grab some rubber o-rings from a hardware store and put them on the bolts, they work really well as lock washers on bolts that aren't tightly torqued.
