From additional searches on 'securing wing panels,' seeing more references to my "blue" option, above. See that most are running 1/4-20 nylon bolts. So, making decision to go with it.

Has anyone used the Xion RC Cam-lock solution on 1/6 scale or larger aircraft?: http://xionrc.com/xion_wing_lock.html I like the idea of spending less time fumbling with tools in tight spaces.

Ordered a pair, today.

7 servos ordered: Hitec HS-5645MG Digital Ultra-Torque Metal Gear 2BB (ailerons, flaps, elevators and rudder)
and, servo programmer: Hitec HFP-30 Field Programmer

Xion RC Cam-locks should arrive, soon.

New servos are in the house! Glad I went with these Hitec digitals - the two for the elevators will fit well next to the engine mount box, and they are quite a bit lighter than servos used in previous Byron Hellcat - should help reduce the weight needed for balance.

Xion RC cam-wing locks - still waiting....

Progress slow, still, but still having fun.
