actually, i didn't glue them together. But maybe when i glue carbon spar cover, some glue leaked to carbon spar slot, make it tight and not easy to remove. So i duct taped the wing to make it more rigid.

agree with you, glued permanently this large wing will be hard to repair and put in cars. So i didn't glue them, only make tight, but still remove able.

How much cabon/glass fiber Rods are you guys using to prevent the tail 'boom' from "waggling back and forth"....?

Are you all putting the rods all the way length of the boom? from cockpit to the beginning for the horizontal and vertical stabilizers.....

If you like flying solo, Dragon Link will work with you, but if you planing to Fly in Formation, Dragon link not the best choice, because can't work with another LRS system nearby. that's why i chose RangeLink or my Long range System.
