Thanks, Chris.
I should have stated that I was making a semi-informed guess.

My previous correx 'Jedelskis' have not required the triangular ribs. I simply hold the angle with tape along the fold.

For lightweight models the wings don't flex much and I've even gone up to a spd400 at 700mm span with no ribs.

They do flex on 'impact' though and with one of my slowflyers I cartwheeled for a landing and it was quite amusing to see the correx wing compress and then 'springboard' the plane about 2 feet vertically.
