As a first cut, I would say you don't need camber change or ailerons, since you will not be flying low. Also visibility is not a big concern because you have a camera in the plane. I would look at a smaller version of my #8 as long as there is a decent landing area. You can build it sparless out of the 6 oz uni from Thayercraft and blue foam. The wing will be much cleaner than if you use balsa. That construction method makes a tough, strong wing at very low cost and labor.
