I believe when I did what you are talking about I used the AG03 at the root and the AG04 at the tip. I'd have to look at my templates to be sure. I used a 6" root chord and a 4" tip chord.

I say go for it. Learn to cut the cores first and then worry about glassing and bagging. Sure, it may be heavier, but these are your first wings and you will learn a lot. Glassing and bagging isn't hard, though.

I'd also be prepared to make a lot of throw away cores. Again, it isn't difficult, but there are some techniques that have to be learned. Once you get these sorted out, you are pretty much good to go. There is a lot of great information here and on the web about how to cut cores. Spend the time to do the research.

Good luck and let us know how it turns out.
