Thanks! I made some progress....
Installed the servos and made tape hinged ailerons.. and made a gap in the fuselage for the wings to fit.

The weight of the plane as of now - with just the 3 servos, wing, fuselage and tailplane is 365 grams. I added the battery, the motor, the receiver, ESC etc. to the weighing scale and the weight comes to 572 grams.
I am going to use a micro motor turning a 6-inch folding prop.
And I am using the thin copper coil that can be found in the windings of electric motors for the servos, instead of cables to save weight. Will keep you posted of my progress.
