Well, that'll help a lot. I only mentioned it because so many scale rubber modelers automatically use a flat bottom FF style airfoil instead of considering the use of other options.

It seems as though you're well along with a lot of the concepts for this. All the best on it. And as others have suggested a full blown mockup of the power transmission system would not be out of the question before commiting to all that scale structure. Perhaps an all profile fan fold foam or depron test bed to even see the power system in flight would not be a bad idea. You could load it up and play with props and get a far better idea of allowable overall flying weight and other aspects and also spot and correct any weak points where it's easy to work with instead of being buried in a bunch of sticks and tissue.

Hell, even the profile version would be amazing to see in flight. Then building up the framed and covered version would just be the icing on the cake and raise the "WOW!" factor off the scale...
