I use 2 carbon fiber arrows as my spars in a modified Armin style wing to prevent wings folding, this armin wing design was tested and can lift 7.5lbs there is a video I posted here of the guy testing the wing and lifting weight

I use bamboo barbecue skewers. I cut a slot & imbed them into the foam, 2 in the top layer & 2 in the bottom layer. The idea is to make an I beam, bamboo top & bottom, with a foam separator.
