Reading through this thread gave me an idea for using a printer in lieu of balsa plus laser cutter. Make lightweight parts similar to how full-sized planes are made like the Piper Cub (see attached image). You should be able to combine balsawood and plastic. Be aware that PLA does not sand well. PLA eats sandpaper. (haven't actually tried it but that's what I heard)
