it is very difficult to do up the wing screws without damaging the paint, i have found if you do it slow and use the apropriate size driver you will not damage anything, you have to remember those alloy screws are very soft and that a worn or incorrect driver will destroy the hex in seconds.

they do need to do something about those screws, or even at least the nuts that hold the wing in place. Something smaller that doesnt take up so much space underneath.

I always pre-cut the threads into such plastic items, weather it be wing screws & nuts or chassis screws. It will stop little problems like this happening, just think of the problems if you were screwing into a graphite chassis
