Default RE: Q-500 WING CONSTRUCTION ?

Hello,
I so make for mines.
I use two balsa 1/4 x 1/4 at the max thickness and two balsa 1/5 x 1/8 more far 2 inch.
Two 1/8 plywood 15 (front) and 10 (rear) inch lenght and 1/16 vertical balsa connect them.
The nervures (not sure of the word) are 1/16 balsa, two are 1/8 plywood (on the fuselage aera bay).
I use 1/25 (1 mm) plywood at the bottom trailing edge.
The whole is covered with 1/16 balsa. I never use fiber glass or carbon finish.
After vinyle finishing, my last wing weighs less than a pound with two servos 1 oz each.
