Wings finished

Finished the wings. Decided to use these servo's:
Bought two 3-packs for $18.00. Six in all for Ail, Flap, Rud, and Elev.
Decided to reverse one flap servo to maintain the orientation of the stock cut-out. It is tricky soldering!
The other solutions are a servo reverser or cut a new pocket and flip the servo.
The control surface horns of a novel form to me, attach easily and look solid.
Nice touch is the wider channel space provided to bury the extension connector leading away from the aileron servo. Of course the leads on my servo's are just a bit too short so I had to cut a bit of foam.
I glued on some servo covers which I had, just because it looks better. But the the double servo arm protection looks a bit funny.
The .75oz glass on the tips is almost invisible.
The spar runs 2/3 of the lenght of the wing, making it quite rigid. The two wing halves connect together with a square dowel (CF?) sliding into the wing spars.
I decided not to glue the wing halves.
