Not sure what a "stringer" is.

Are your referring to a carbon spar or brace in the wing?

Maybe a problem in the translation, if you describe what a stringer is used for I can help.

OK..... the model does not have a carbon spar. The wings and the joint is robust and thick, no spar is needed..... unless you overload the model with a much bigger EDF and much bigger battery.

However...... it wouldn't hurt to put one in there.

I'm planning on putting a small one in mine when I eventually get it, on the exceed F18 this is a must if you're going to fly faster than stock

I plan on using an MB1....the Gs you can put on the wings would be up there
