is it even possible?
Mmm it's a trail edge not a leading one. As suggested better to purchase a new wings or kit.
But is you can cut a foam with hot wire, you should be able to cut any curve.
In this case cut the wing as here

and use cutted piece to draw the shape.

If not but you already have good enough flight experience just cut wing tips on both wings.

They are for roll stability and not for the lift. Bixler will get more speed BTW. It was mentioned in FPV theead as far as I remember. Somebody cut them already in 1 cm after ailerons.
