As always thoughts and comments welcome.
In regards to the whole wing hinge area
, this such a complex problem that I'd take the easiest approach just to get some thing working first, then reinforce it as needed. You can try to make it light later, if it works.
For me this would be to build everything out of 1/32" plywood. Use epoxy for glue. Should be quick. Plywood cuts with scissors and can be drilled. Then if it works, you can lay on as many layers of glass cloth and epoxy as needed to be strong enough for flight.
But I'm a fast and dirty builder.....have you seen my camera pod?
A little over a day from concept to creation.
