You may want to consider going with a thinner airfoil. It will increase your penetration. And at 50g, you definitely don't need the lift of a thick, highly cambered section like the s3014. Which I believe is the section used in the Bug. The AG36 has been suggested here in the past. But if it were me, I would go with the AG38. Especially at 50g. Good luck and keep us posted. My original Bug weighed a bit over 90g and flew very nicely. 50g should be outstanding, especially with a better airfoil.
