The nearest 2m solid foam wing powered glider I have is an ST330.

The wings including a pair of aileron servos and an aluminium joining tube weigh 340 g.
At 240 g for your basic structure I think your complete wing is likely to end up a bit heavier.
Extra weight for a slope soarer is not too much of a problem except more weight means it will fly that bit faster and will need more wind up the slope to keep aloft.
For faster flying your wing section does look to be on the thick side.
To give an example the wing of the ST 330 is 220 mm front to back and is 24 mm thick.

I will follow your blog with interest.
