Another trick for re-inforcing thin balsa is to run thin CA into the edges, either before (if you want more CA penetration = stronger local hardening of the wood) or after the PU. Thats commonly used on the larger DHLGs round here. Otherwise you could use 1.5mil packing tape (with or without the PU/CA) on one side as a re-inforcement & control surface hinge.
