AUW 615 grams. About 400 sq inches area. 1800 kv motor, 40amp ESC, 2200 3s lipo, Radio is inside wing. Just don't have camera anymore for maiden so will have to get someone to video or attach my camera to my tx somehow.

First flight didn't go well as too tail heavy. Same story with first one I built as it has low sweep and needs forward cg - almost as much as staightwing tailless plane.
I will add couple ounces and it should be fine. This size wing carries more weight easily and doesnt effect flight time much. I expect to hit 20 minute flights with this battery as my last wing of this configuration hit 18 minutes on an 1800mah lipo..
The truth is in the testing I guess.

Finished the airframe and ready to add controls and electronic stuff. Weighs 260 grams without any equipment. About 400 sq inches and should be final AUW of 600 grams. This is my BoneYard 6 wing. This will be finless like my other wings.

I gave away my last 40" wing when I moved and enjoyed flying it so much I had to build another. Reinforced this one with carbon fishing pole sections - so strong I can't bend the wing and I haven't even laminated it yet. With the big tubes (which add very little weight) and little flex, this feels more like a real airplane wing. This one should last a few years.
