Default 48" 3d-spad

I finally found some time to put on my project after the holidays.
I am trying to make a plane from coro as simple as possible.
Wingspan = 48.0"
Length = 40.55"
Weight = N/A I need a scale

I connected it with angle pieces I cut from a piece of clear, plastic wall corner protector.
I had to stiffen the wings with wire. I just bought a pack of wire from Dollar Tree. I uses less than 1/4 of the wire with two wire stay on top and bottom of each wing.
Next I meed to make the control horns out of the same clear angle.
I need to install the motor and electronics.
I have a flight stabilization module on order I may install to aid with 3D, we shall see.
Here are a few pics of the progress.



























I am trying to make it out of available materials.
I got the coroplast from a 4' x 4' used election sign.
Not much cost invested so far,
