    solar panels are still not very efficient. you will need a lot of panel area
    all of the top side of the wings and maybe some of the fuselage (body) as well

    I assume you want the panels to charge batteries ? or is the plane only going to fly
    on cloudless days ?
    You need to calculate how much power is required by the RC electronics and
    the motor etc
