I have many delta wings, but one of the lightest is my swift II. Weighs in a 5 oz without electrics and flys with the best of them. Straight as an arrow and as slow as you want.

Continuing with the Elipstik 700 build. Hardest thing to engineer was the battery box located below the wing. The plane lands on the box, so I spent a lot of time coming up with the best size and shape. Then I had to figure out how to position the velcro so the battery is secure during flight, but could still be removed. The box is made with 1/16 in aircraft ply faced inside with 1/8in balsa. Control surfaces are covered with laminating film. The box has tabs that will be inserted into the balsa planked "floor" at a final balance position.
