Awesome work.

What do you use for the covering? Is it packing tape or heat shrink covering?
Do you plan to add spars to the wings? Or you will relay only on LE/TE and the aileron stiffeners?

It is covered with Hobbykings Oracover attrap.

Works great without melting the foam.

I put a balsa spar in it, but perhaps I do some more.
Fuselage is only 250 gram so it don't need much
