Hey gang what are those spike type things on the wings for?

Great photo!!!!

@TREEMAN69, those spikes simply cover up the actuators for the flaps so that they can be mounted outside of the wing, yet still be aerodynamic. The actuators are quite large to be mounted inside the wing, taking up precious room where there could be a fuel tank.
