I recommend you use carbon rods and some solite film. If you are not going to put any electronics in it other then motor and battery you could make a very small plane since the carbon rods and solite film is so light. Make sure you get carbon rods that are at least 1 mm thick otherwise they will not have enough umph to get the material to stay tight. Also the solite film does not shrink so make sure it is tight when you heat it on.
