2.7Kg approx. There shouldn't be much force on them at all when up, even in heavy manuoevers. Flow, due to near equal curvature top and bottom, would be equalised in level flight, and at pitch rotations the levels against one side, over their small area, would be unimportant. (They are somewhat a total of some ahead of CofG, but not much)

The Starmax F-16 had issues because the joints are not perfect, with no gap, and also no 'covers' thus huge turbulence situations possible, and poor hinging. Then at that point, throw in the WEAK servo pushrods that bent under pressure and it totals "Disaster"!!
But none of that is applicable here.
