You can see the wing saddle and the opening at the bottom of the fuse....it has to be a one piece bolt on wing. You can also tell because in one pic with the wing mounted you can look inside the fuse and see the wing joined together at the center.

I've owned several 2pc wings that slid together in the middle and then bolted into the wing saddle. I can't say how the tornado is going to be but those features aren't requirements to have a 1pc wing. on the other hand, i've never had a 1pc wing with a wing tube.

Yeah that's true. Since it has a wing tube, that would make sense. I have only seen that on high wing planes like Cubs, but I am sure plenty of other designs use that idea.

How about it Henry, One piece wing or two piece that joins by wing tube and bolts in center? I am still holding for the Hurricane XL and its release date in 2012.

It's a two piece wing with 3 spars then you bolt it to the fuse. It's a very strong design.
You have the option to glue the wing together or just leave it alone so you can take it apart.

Could we get some pictures of the hurricane together in one piece with the canopy on , from differnt angles?
That would be great. I thought I saw a few but can't seem to find them.
Thanks

Below you can see a few pictures of the Hurricane from different angeles like you requested. I apologize for the delay but we have been very busy with other contract buisness not RC related of our company. As for different color schemes, the Hurricane will come in the red sport jet scheme and a Desert Camo Scheme as well as in white primer.

I would like to also let everybody know that the Hurricanes will not be avialble till around March or April. We have had a customer ( Not RC reltated ) purchase the whole first production line of this airplane. So becuase of that we will have to start mass producton agian after we are finished making all those airplanes ready to fly for this customer. I apologize for the delay but we will have this avialble as soon as possible.
