The avonds plans (which I think are the hobby barn plans?) show the wing sweep mechanism. I'm unsure about spoilers.

I have the MAN plans, and they show ailerons, no spoilers. Didn't realize you needed swing too, will go look

As far as spoilers, I'm going to leave my wings till last. The DCU kit has nothing on the wings, and reports are it flies fine like that. Depending on how heavy it comes out, I've been toying with a simple spoiler boards mounted to a carbon rod with an offset arm that will allow them to raise and lower without binding.
No individual hinges or links. Rotate the shaft, boards come up. My thoughts were control arm on the carbon shaft that sticks out the bottom of the wing, with a thin wing servo to actuate it.

If you haven't already checked them out, check out Invertmast's build tread, or the SM and FEJ threads for ideas
