Strategic Strapping locations
EPP, carbon, fiberglass and strapping tape all greatly compliment eachother.
Booleans EPP rule (durability+rigidity)=[((Carbon+fg)*(spar+tube))*(strapping tape)]

Top view Hard nose ins can cause split from inside aileron corner diagonal toward fuselage and nose. The diagonal tape is to intercept the stretch at a perpendicular angle to prevent the tear. This process is repeated on both sides.
On this model we have two spars. One at leading edge and one at trailing edge just ahead of this hinge. A trailing edge spar will help prevent tearing at this spot.
Tears are glued and taped as they happen. The plane keeps its shape. If the nose is hanging and bits are missing place 1/64 plywood on the sides to recover an otherwise lost cause.
If it rips in the strapped area you hit hard hard hard! Just what this plane wants to train! Give me the abuse, I'll fly for you. I pay for your mistakes and stay strong till you got it going on! If I don't make it my low cost twin brother will
woop. I better droop in the goop and slap the strap. sounds like something to do just before flight.
Argh I should have taped this area. Taping over it without adding goop will work fine on this area.
Wing tip rip preventer. Very important for smashing tip crashes on asphalt.
Good ol leading edge strap. Note the strap at Slofly is 100 pound strength and the thinnest we can find. Grams add up DRAMATICALLY with thicker MIL tape. MIL is not MM!
The control horns stratigic strapping tape has torque and leverage in mind for your maximum aileron control enjoyment.
