It is never gone. You will always have to be careful and never stop the exercises.

Use a non-folder. Now you won't have to worry about it getting caught on the leading edge of the wing on start up.

I try to use sewn hinges whenever possible. I would attach pictures, but it has been a while since I was able to upload pictures. I won't try again on this forum. It works ok on RCG.

Purpose is to make sure the spoiler closes when commanded baring a servo failure. Loads on the servo from a spoiler are trivial with all schemes that I have seen and are never an issue.

Weight is most important in glide on in calm conditions. Those conditions seldom exist in these parts and some weight is desirable. I don't obsess about it.

I often wonder about Aleene's Tacky Glue sold at craft stores. It looks and smells a lot like canopy glue. I haven't tried it yet.

When you look at the price per flight of A123's, their price becomes trivial. They last so long.

Same one. A123's are heavier. I also have 2 more small servos for spoilers. I probably will post some pictures tomorrow. It is happy at that weight.

I worry about getting too far out by accident. It happens easily. I would use a park flier receiver for indoor flying in a blink.

I also am cautious with the ones with only one antenna. My Airtronics has worked well in my Chrysalis. I don't ever plan to get a park flier receiver. Too many things can go wrong.

I have covered the outboard side of polyhedral tip section ribs with chrome Monokote and then used transparent over the tip section. At high altitude you can get some very visible flashes at times.
