Building the wings first. The ailerons will be the size as per the plan. To do this I'm building the edge support structure while in-situ then i'll cut out the aileron.
In my previous builds I've use a solid piece of balsa, however I do not think that will work as well for this size aileron. Will be using in-wing servos - HXT500 which weight 7 grams on my scale.
My components weigh it at 236 grams, that could be lightened. I believe the plane itself will come in around 60-70grams so I'll definately be around the 300-320g mark (~11oz). That sounds OK to me 8-14oz seems to be what most are able to achieve a flying model with.
