I'd recommend doing the wing similarly to the experimentalairlines armin style, but make the spar the way flitetest do (two layers of foamboard, with the paper running vertically so it won't bend.)
also, make sure to brush minwax into the paper! if you don't then the first time you land on wet grass you'll screw up your fuse.

A Quadrifilar antenna? How does it perform? I like to fly right above myself, and I'm usually right in the Fresnel zone under the antenna (Circular polarized 5.8 FatShark)
