Default hanger 9 p-51 blue nose

building a hanger 9 p-51 blue nose,It does not say to glue the wing half's together.Wing is 65 inch and will transport ok as one piece.Has any one else with this model gone either way.Your thoughts? Thanks

Always stronger to glue it together and "bandage" the joint with fiberglass. There are a few models i have seen that do not require the wings to be permanently joined and I have gone ahead and done this. Most notable was the earlier version Tower Trainer 40's which had a tendency for the wing to fail if this was not done.

I haven't seen the structure of this P-51, but many larger models allow the wings to come apart for easier storage and transport and have no issues.

I don't know many people that would want a 96 inch span model that you couldn't separate the wing into 2 (or more) panels for transport.

When in doubt, if transport is not a problem, I glue and fiberglass the joint.

A few ways to deal with this... One is a reverse direction servo. or put each flap on its own channel and correct it in computer mix.

The mechanical solutions can be annoying or might look bad.
