Having looked at the assembly instruction manual online, I think that it would also be advantageous
to put full span webbing on the main wing spars and also possibly do some diagonal bracing out into
the wing. I agree on the wing tube idea and 3-piece wings, easier to transport and an overall stronger
wing. Consider sheeting the wing forward of the main spar which is known as a "D" tube once the webbing
pieces are installed between the top & bottom main wing spars. I would also recommend the main spars
be out of Basswood or Spruce instead of balsa.
