Default Q-500 WING CONSTRUCTION ?

Guys, just thinking about the weight of the VIPER and other simular quicky models that have the foam veneer wing. to me the fuselage is light enough but the wing is rather heavy, naturally the lighter the better for all out speed etc so i was thinking of constructing a built up wing with full balsa sheet covering plus the use of good spruce and carbon fibre flat lenghts for the main rib holdings etc. i know this wing would be very strong and warp free plus no doubt half the weight of these foam wings when finished but i would like to know your advice ?
