I can bend them if I really try but that's far more force than I see happening in flight. I do think the wings need to be braced to the fuselage, however. We'll see once I glue them in and the glue dries. I'm a measure 27 times glue once and still get it wrong kind of guy so I didn't glue them yet since I want to get it right.
Just finishing up the 1100mm yak so really haven't decided for sure what i will do on the swift...but I'm sure I will be repairing it at some point so I'll get plenty of chances to figure it out. Thanks for your input.
