I know, I know...

Just something about tossing a couple hundred bucks in the sky (engine, receiver etc) that makes me nervous I guess. I wasn't sure if that wave in the LE would do anything or not. I'm sure much worse wings have flown though.

Besides, don't you think I should but a motor on it first?

Putting equipment in a spad is like putting on football pads over your equipment(well, maybe not the engine). I've only broken something once in a spad crash, and that was the antenna on my reciever, which was easily replaced.

I've had minor waves in the leading edge on some of my wings also. It's not an issue to be concerned with. After all, you are not dealing with a percision pattern plane. Get it in the air, trim it out and have funnnnnnnnnn.

I'd worry more about picking up that screw on the floor than that "wave"!

It's there in front of the right leading edge on the floor where the rug and carpet meet!
