I've pulled so many G's on my V4 it tore the fuse horizontally, wings in tact. I've been through 4 serious crashes and all that remain are the wings!
Mine have been through hell, a motor coming off, and 100 yards or so down, and I pulled up at the end to try lesson the damage, and the worst has been that the root of the entry holes for the CF tube were a little loose. I wrapped one layer of good fiber tape around the middle of the CF tube and it is snug on both again.
I use rubber bands, ones from a SIG plane, that work very well.
