Haha, Trainer.  ;D

Did not add up the hours, what with some failed prints etc, but must have been 50 hours. I just do it in stages, over time so does not seem long.

Printed a few models now.

They all seem to fly well but you have to be very careful on landing otherwise they turn into confetti.  :D

Is there a way to strengthen them that isn't prohibitive weight-wise? Something like coating it with PVA glue or something?

Wrapping it in tape would help you to pick up all the pieces afterwards but little else.  Git gud is the only real answer.
