The main wing is made of a single piece of 3mm depron folded over to form a Clark-Y-ish airfoil. Of course, it's not really Clark-Y or any accurate airfoil due to the imprecise build method but is good enough. I'm aiming for a 10% thick, high lift airfoil.
I used a plastic broom handle to bend the wing. You just need something with a curved or round cross section to press the foam against. A rounded table edge would also work.

Use gentle but firm pressure. You don't need to bend it much, we just need it to curve slightly.
This is what it should look like after bending.
