Tape is used to keep the panels from sliding apart in flight.
After flying, un tape the wings and you have a center section and two tips.
ok, thanks for the info. I have already used the normal 1/4 in rib and glued the 1/16" plywood cap. So, it will not be a hard re-do repair. I see at the bottom right of the print showing the angle rib and 10 degree angle. It was covered up by all the glue and tools sitting on top of that portion!! crap!
