They are the same thread.
On the clear airfoil shapes, those are spacers for the SFG's... if you need them.
Some of my planes, the ailerons are out to the tips and I need them. Some of them don't need the spacers.

Use an allen driver to run the allen bolts in and out a few times to clean up the threads. Worst case scenario you may have to clean it with a tap.

Get the bolts working with the blind nuts first, and then worry about putting the wings on.

I think even at this point you might benefit from reading the manual. And watching the build videos that are in the resources section on the EF website. Seriously. Those clear plastic airfoil shapes are spacers for the SFGs that go between the wing and the SFG. The little round clear washers of the same material go under the screw heads on the outside of the SFGs.

Thanks Doc!
It also helps to read The Sport Pilot's Guide To 3D.

My replacement fuse came in a day early!!! The wife saw it and said "... you get a new airplane ..." I said it doesn't count, just spare parts (I thought it was my 42-in slick too).

She is counting the small little boxes now too - like all my fpv stuff ...

2S Lipo

I have a handful of 2S 250mah, 450mah, and 500mah packs for some profile planes. I was thinking of running my 5070 and 5087 servos directly. Would I be able to get at least one flight out of the 250mah packs? I figured, wieght wise, the 250mah is the way to go on the 48's and the 450mah or 500mah on 60"
