Hang on, can i have the old obsessive compulsive Scruffy back please!

Gee mate dont go soft on me now. The book says fit stays as per this fuzzy blurry photo and glue. Did you push the stays 5mm or so into the foam, glue and then glue at the join when the angles were right?
i might use carbon... but i like your idea - jam 'em into the fuselage and wing with as much "spare" poked in as i can get to go with some flex in the manipulation; probably have to guesstimate and trim first

then jig it all up perfectly (which my struts should already have largely achieved)

then hit it with some cyanoacrylate; it might be good to bind the X of the rods with something reliable too

if it has that much grunt then 1300mah will last for plenty long for my concentration span per flight
