Simple 2 pcs wing joiner
Originally the joiner was introduced on RC groups by Ira several years ago.
Since many of you guys have Skywalker and struggle with one piece wing this is a great option to make two piece wing.
I am using this connections for last 6 years and never had a nasty surprise.
All you need are CF arrow shafts, arrow aluminum inserts, 0.158" piano wire, 0.158" drill and your choice of glue.
Cut the wire to the desired length.
Drill through aluminum inserts to enlarge existing hole so your music wire fits easily.
Cut off the wide part (flange ) of the insert.
Determine how deep the insert will go in to the arrow shaft. I actually use two inserts one at the end of music wire and the other with flange at the end of the arrow.
apply the glue around the insert and push it to the desired depth in the arrow shaft.
Use the flanged inset to prevent arrow splitting.
Since Skywalker wing has two spars, there is no way it will ever fold in flight.
