A Sig Rascal 40 has a wing that does NOT glue together. It has a THICK aluminum spar that goes in the middle, with an alignment pin in the rear, then two wing bolts in the rear, and two alignment dowels in the front.

And no, it definately wouldn't be the wing as the problem. I've hod over 70 flights on mine as an electric model (before it died) and every flight was pushing the airframe quite a bit, with a lot of lomcevaks, rolls, loops, inverted, immelmanns ect. ect.
