Default GP Christen Eagle II arf wing flexing


Hi all,
I have just finished assembling the 30%GP CEII ARF. What a nice aircraft. Anyway over here in australia any model over 7kgs needs a permit to fly issued by an heavy model inspector. During the inspection the fellow shook the aircraft holding the wingtips quite violently and i heard a fairly loud crack. The aircraft was test flown and flew fine. When i got home i notice that if you lift the aircraft up from the wingtips you can see the covering near the spar wrinkle( a little ) just were the center sheeting ends.( on both top and bottom wings) I don't think there is any damage to the wing structure and the sound might have been the bottom wing moving slightly against the fuz. Would anyone that has the eagle be kind enough to see if there wings flex at the same point as mine?
Thanks
