I fly my E-starter without the struts, but my setup is 350...

Last week I had the chance to see how strong the wing actually is. Due to the fact that a car ran over my wing (don't even ask how it happened.... ) I had to replace it.

Since the strength of this wing has been an issue, I had mine reinforced with a carbon rod instead of the bamboo, and 2 lengths of wide packing tape on the underside of the wing. Then I tried to break the remains (3/4) of the destroied wing, and really had problems breaking it. It is very strong and the tape really ads a lot of strength. So the struts are still in my workshop - no need for them!!

My replacement wing is back on and I'm in the air again - far away from cars out of controle!!
