The little downward quarter circles on the tips of the E-Starter's wing are used for extra stability. The He-162 is a good example of a real plane that used a similar (if not identical) design.

I think the E-Starter will fly without them, it just won't be as stable. I'm not sure what GWS fixes with the stabilizing wing tips, but if its not serious, then you can get away with it.
