150% Sparrow build!

I am going to be starting a 150% sparrow build, and before I start I have a few questions.
Should I add ailerons? I think it should be fine without but would love your guys opinion.
Should I put landing gear on it?
And where should I strengthen the airframe? Thanks. Keno developed plans for me and got everything to scale like with the cavitie cuts.

Ive built my 200% without dihedral and therefore needs ailerons... if you keep the dihedral you should be able to get by without... but you can always add them down the road.

the fuse looks to be strong enough even at 200%, I did use an arrow shaft for the wing (which is part of the reason for no dihedral)

are you building it pusher or tractor?
