I have this plane and have flown it several times. Mines running a 500kv motor on 5s 5000 with a 13x10 apc prop. I did droppable dolly as well since the real plane did that.

First thing....it requires a lot of thrust to break ground, but once it does, it'll shoot up quite quick like.
Also....Id recommend putting up reflex on the elevons. About 5mm above the neutral point of the trailing edge of the wing. You will need it.

I also put an estes C size rocket motor in the tail with the arming function powered by a battle switch run off a 9v battery.
