I'm not sure what you're asking but if you press Alt while clicking a part, you will be able to position a copy of that part and all the daughter parts attached to it.

Not exactly sure what you are asking, but I can try and help.

So if you are building a space plane, and you want to have the patterns of the control surfaces on both wings be the same, then you should press the "X" key to enable symmetry. If you want to actually copy & paste, then left clicking on the part while holding down the "mod" key will copy that part, and all the daughter parts attached it. Your computers "mod" key depends on what operating system you have. For example, if your operating system is Windows, then your mod key would be the "Alt" key.

Alternatively, if you want to copy the wings for later use, you have to use the sub assambly system.

Open the sub assambly map (in the parts), and select the part of the wings that's attatched to the main plane. Drag that to the box at the bottom of the sub assambly map. This will prompt you to give it a name.

You can now select this group of parts from there to use on any new craft
