post some more pics. I am still trying to figure out exactly what you did.

EDIT: oh, did you put the blind nut facing into the wing, as oppose to inside the wing pointing to the fuse?

If so, why can't you just gently pry it out of there?

And an explanation from some RCers...

And if you have real flight, you can load up one of the slope soaring sailplanes with a bunch of weight (Shuriken), and then go to the "DS Ridgeline" field, in the "Sierra Nevada" section and kick the speed of the wind up and try it yourself....It is quite fun!!

OK, I get it now. Pretty cool. Thanks for the links!

Heat it with a soldering iron till the glue melts and pull it out with a bolt threaded in?
