Just thought I would post this. After printing and flying several wings and planes I have always been worried about their strength in the air. Having put several flights on this particular wing and after sitting in my trailer all summer the wing had deformed slightly and the rubber bands had damaged the wing and fuse. So it was time to rid it and I figured it would be fun to test the strength of it. So after flying for a couple of laps I climbed some and dove at the runway under full throttle, probably around 60-70mph. When it seemed it had hit max speed I pulled full elevator expecting it to basically explode or do something cool. Instead it took all the Gs without breaking. Unfortunately being so close to the ground I did not recover from the 10 foot loop and drove it into the ground, that was spectacular though. They are stronger than you think.
