Indoor combat

I plan to attend the meeting also.
I don't think you need to limit the amount of foam used. Limit the battery size and require a flight time of say 5 min. and that will control the power, size and weight of the planes.

1000 mAh 2S is way too much! I am thinking 300-400 might be best, 500 mAh tops.
I still like "planes" rather than "combat wings", but if we go with wings for durability and ease of build, your design looks pretty good. At 24" span I like the size. Less LE sweep would help to snag more streamers.

Since firewalls have proven to be frequently damaged, I favor a stick mounted motor and would like to be able to use a c/f stick.

I think a 10g motor will be about right. Here are spec. on the 18-11 motor shown below.
Kv (rpm/v) 2000
Weight (g) 10
Max Current (A) 5.5
Resistance (mh) 0
Max Voltage (V) 7
Power(W) 41 on 2S
Shaft A (mm) 2
Length B (mm) 22
Diameter C (mm) 18
Can Length D (mm) 7
Total Length E (mm) 30
