It is not self evident. The last picture looks like you nailed on the wings which I don't think you are suggesting.

that is my mistake
The both part of the wing are not nailed. They are not permanent connected.
I use 3 mm screw with "Nylock Nuts" before flight.

Excellent. I like a solid mount. I used to use rubber bands but with how I fly it I simply glued in my wings.

WOW, what a superb build and fine craftsmanship. I think your approach will get a link in the front of the thread. (Right AJ?)

Make sure you Check the CG because that's a lot of extra weight on the tail.

I do like the build and the photos. Nice job.

I even see an arming switch which is used almost exclusively with Nitro Fuel planes. While I do like the idea of turning off the ESC with this switch I would still want to disengage the battery. Maybe a plug on the outside that breaks the battery lead circuit.

Wing Part
I add additional carbon tube 6 mm. I used "Dremel" to make the additional slit.
For the Wings-spar I used 8 mm carbon tube.
In this tube I glued 3 x 3 mm carbon tubes
Attention !!! - they are glued only from one side. For the another side from the 8 mm tube I used only PVC Stopper (tube).
So the wings spar is stable by twist.

No epoxy or CA was used. As I recall, I think I used Foam Tac or simply hot glue so a long bladed knife can cut through the glue. I glued them in over a year ago.
