I use flower wire for giving strength to struts and rotorblades.

Struts
One advantage is, that you can let the wire stick out a bit, use a needle on the fuselage or wherever it has to go and fix it that way.

Rotor blades
I bend the wire in a wavelike pattern and glue it between two blades making one.

I use a very similar technique for my rotors and landing gear struts. I usually use straightened out paper clips for smaller pieces.
