I know ,but there is not much I can do.
I saw Roland's drawing about reinforcement critical points .
And have checked these two inner sides of the fuse and they are perfectly rounded ,I see no reason to increase weight with more tow over those "corners"
Two carbon pins in the wing front and back make the wing work as part of the fuse.With tight fit of the wing of course.
My CG is right on the Roland's recommendations 86mm but I feel,I can move it a little further back but not forward.

BTW ,I have been told by experts not to torture her much
