Default Weston Magnum Stress Question

After three days and about 8 flights I'm leaning the west 50 engine on my magnum more and more and getting more and more RPM's.(man this is one fast and fun plane)My question is tho has anyone had them self or heard of the wing failing or breaking at high speed turns on the magnum.The reason I ask is because it looks as if the wing has bowed or bent up-wards a little on both sides....is this normal.

The wing tips on my magnum (and I assume all of them) are bowed up, my guess is you just never noticed previously. I'm assuming it's for some washout, but they just look like they bow up. Looks kind of cool I though

WOW,
That's great this thing is a blast to fly.I'm only using a 9/6 prop for now and hope to get every bit of speed I can out of it.
