Keeping the airframe lightweight has to be your primary build goal. Despite my tendency to overbuild I can still get them fairly light, my SD delta despite being fully sheathed came out at the same weight as a film covered stock one.

How dose one determine what the wing loading should be. Dose a plane have to produce as much lift at the weight of the plane?

The lift produced has to be equal to the weight of the plane in order for it to fly. You determine what the wing loading should be on how you want the airplane to fly. Lighter = more responsive, Heavy = less responsive.

Edit to add:
My response is very simplistic this site has some very good insight into building and design considerations and there effect on performance.

Looking good.
That just leaves the fairing into the wing not bad.

It looks as if nothing happened.
Watch your switches this time.

Checked the transmitter log, if I could find prove I flipped the swich. To be sure nothing else was going wrong there. And guess what? I found channel logging, indicating I flipped the switch alright... !
