Default Wingo Wing Assembly, Glue or Tape?

Would anyone here have any advice on the assembly of the main wing of a Wingo? The instructions call for the wing ends to be taped on ( I guess for easy removal or replacement)

What do most people do?

I taped mine as per the instructions. I'm new and have crashed it A LOT. The wings have never been a problem, but my fuse is a flying glue wad.

Same here, taped the wing together as in instructions. Many fuse breaks
form crashes but the wing is fine. Maybe I should have taped the fuse!

Take a look at Elmers Probond Polyurthane very good for foam but slow to cure.
then maybe a little tape to steamline the edges if they are there don't use filler to heavy.

Another vote for taping the wing tips. I too crashed my Wingo at full throttle into the side of a hill (chasing my dog with it, etc.). Ripped the fuse in two but the wings came through without a scratch. If and when you do crash your Wingo (OK, you will crash it. Everybody does.) go with the polyurthane glue mentioned in an earlier post. It's great on foam/Wingos.

I dont think you'll have any more doubts, but here's my advice :
tape it! not very original, I know but it works fine
