AXN Floater Jet / Clouds Fly Wing Retention System

This is a mini blog of my Wing Retention System for the AXN Floater Jet / Clouds Fly.

I read a lot suggestions about the retention system, but I somehow didn't like any of them. So I set out to make an Ultimate Wing Retention System! I think I did quite well... those wings ain't going ANYWHERE I don't want them to go!

Basically, I re-enforced the wings with pieces of wood, drilled a hole, put a carbon rod through it, stick a piece of steel wire, bent it, took another piece of wire, bent it into a clamp, and that's it.

Here the details. Just remember to work as precise as you can, and the result will be really nice to look at AND it will do the job perfectly.

Great idea but the hook and rubber bend does not require any mods except just gluing the hook to the wing.
But I really like your idea, may incorporate in another plane

Thanks! I was afraid whether glue would hold for longer periods of time, given that it must constantly counteract the static load of the rubber bands (I keep my wings on almost always, even when not flying)
