I know we all have our opinions but I really like just screwing the wing in. No more dealing with body pins and spacers to get the right fit so there is no wobble and so on. Just screw em down and they sit tight and perfect everytime. Plus use the countersink blue washer and it looks nice and clean vs body clips. Just my 2 cents worth.

Sand off the posts on the wing mounts then drill directly thru where the posts were. Drill holes in your wing just big enough for the screws then use countersunk screws withe the blue countersunk washers to screw in. Very easy and takes 5 min

Picked up a B5M yesterday. I've been out of the "game" for about 15 years...

The build went very smooth. I've only messed with it a bit in the back yard so far, looking forward to getting out somewhere with it.

The Novak system pictured in the group shot ended up being defective, so I went with a TrakPower MS-1 ESC and a Reedy Sonic motor.
