I looked at some close ups of your wing pics. It looks like you have tow on top and bottom of a balsa or hard wood strip. Like some of the other guys have said F5D pulls some serious G's. You need carbon box or rods run through the length of that wing and I would use two. Did you glass the outside of the wing surface or just cover it?

I know these steps add weight and no one wants that...but to pull f5D turns there is no way around it! Two carbon spars inside that wing might help with the wing twisting around the carbon you already have when the speed starts to go up.
