you are welcome, I am just getting into these micro models myself... normally I build foamies with layered KF wings.. but planes are planes and its all a matter of scale.. but with the micros every gram of weight affects its performance...
I am looking at build methods in an attempt to get better strength but without a weight gain..

The simple single layer of 3 mm is good, its likely with its flat CF along the leading edge is the best and simplest option..
3mm doubled up with glue between is much tougher, add tape over and its even better, but it all adds weight, which kills performance..

So far an open cut layered structure is looking good, with a film sandwiched between the layers to fill the gaps.. Its a lot more work, but I hope it will increase the longevity of any model..
I haven't built a V wing with this method but built a slow delta type
