As long as I am prepared to live with a longer wingspan and the associated transport and storage challenges then a one piece wing seems to be a better engineering approach.

Has anyone any comments?

I kept mine separate because of storage and transport issues. I did glue the spreaders the wing bolts to separate wing halves so that there is a wing bolt going through each half. I have had no issues what so ever. In fact I was flying figure eights around a set of light poles on a soccer field recently with a friend...read pylon racing...and we go a little close resulting in a fairly fast wing strike against the pole and a rather hard landing...read crash. broke fuse just in front of tail (about 85% cut through) and cracked the nose from hatch to floor, even broke the stiffener I had put in. It put two small dents in the front of left wing but no displacement or damage to wing mount area.
