Well yesterday was an unmitigated disaster.We found a good field,but the wind was too strong.Waited a bit,and in what seemed like a calm spell tried a throw into the wind.Of course a gust caught it,straight back over my head and a crunched wingtip resulted.
The wing is definitely fluttering,so I'm going to try some layers of packaging tape.
The blind nuts are only into balsa on the underside,I'll reinforce these as well.The outer one on the damaged wing has pulled into the wood.
Then rebalance and wait for a calm day.
