Default wings

FWIW I have a Aerobird 3. It was the first bird I really learned how to fly and I like it alot, still. Unfortunately the first one had a mishap with diving straight down p/u a ALOT of speed and trying to pull out of it. Well the wings buckled. It was me I pushed it to far I accept responsibility.

Any way the reason it buckled was because the the rubber bands that attach the wing left crease marks on the wing. This was the weak spot and it gave from the stress. So now I have another AB3 that sits in my trunk in the box for the flights during lunch. But what I did was taped some reinforced tape (3M makes some with fiber or string in it) around that area where the rubber bands go and presto no more weak spot, with roughly the same wing characteristics.
