I love landing this plane.

Edit: Here's a picture. The hole in the tab is indeed eroding. I out some epoxy, but why is this happening, I wonder?
I have maybe 100 flights on mine, and the wings are as tight against the fuselage as new. I don't have any erosion of the tabs either.

Do you tighten the screw down with the washer under the head? The compression from the screw on the tab holds my wings in place.
