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.

This allows for easier transport, because it's HUGE

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.

Also, mine did almost the same. If you were using a seperate Rx pack, check to make sure that it's charged. Mine died mid flight, and in it went
