Second Wing Spar Question pls. help!

Second Wing Spar Question pls. help!

The manual shows a second wing spar thru the fuselage as in the picture here, but the wing has some laminated lite-ply embedded in the wing I don't see how this is continuous thru both wings thru the fuselage

its fine keeps the wing rigid, dont worry as the wing is very strong anyway.

yes, they need to add a note, or change the info.
I asked the same question, several posts back.
Just for FYI, I use the "hitch Pins" instead of the screws to hold the wings on.
Love them.

I really want to get my AC up and flying. But the last few days and for the next week,, -5 F, and wind. Chill factor -10-20 F

I just found in the box a 4mm x 400mm carbon fiber rod that looks like it was meant to be the second spar. Only thing is I don't know how to install it because there is no hole in the wing for it. As seen in my previous post the wing has lite-ply in that place with no hole...

I used a fiberglass rod on mine and covered with colored packing tape. I also moved the elevator horn to the top. Mine is ready to fly as soon as conditions permit.
