Those ailerons look good.
I am not sure you will actually save much weight using solid on the servo as their wires are a small diameter already. Much of the weight comes from the servp connectors if you use ready made extensions.
When using solid wire the insulation 'varnish' must be carefully scraped off, not as easy as it sounds, and the joint really must be soldered otherwise you will get poor connections.
Any connections you make must be insulated unless you can positively keep the wires separated and the joint fully supported. Solid wire joints will quickly fracture if it flexes at all. Always keep a short length of flexible cable leading to the rx plug for the same reason.

Nice to see the design developing.
