Having thought about all this esp the wing folding, I would say you need to do nothing with regards to folding and unfolding the wings. I could be considered preventative maintenance under part 43 ( since the operation is simple in nature and requires not tools),but since part 43 does not apply to aircraft with an experimental airworthiness, no aircraft record entry is required so I think you are on solid ground as far as folding and unfolding the wings...The key is the airworthiness certificate it tied to the operation limitations. If the FAA inspector or DAR had included "make record entry when wings are folded or unfolded" then that would be the requirement but they dont do this so I would argue no record entry needed to fold or unfold the wings....since part 43 does not apply to your experimental airplane.
