Have Quickie Q2 Serial #80 a beautfull lookng machine but recently found cracks near the root of the canard wing. Looking for informaton whether this is normal superfcial exterior paint cracking from the wing flex or major structural damage which at worst could lead to a wing seperaton. Any information from knowledgable informed composite bulders would be most appreciated. Thanks
