If you don't have ailerons set up yet then put the rudder on the aileron channel

If you want you can hand-glide it - run underneath the plane and let go with a gentle push up, then catch it again as it may stall and hit the deck before you flown it

If the CG is in the right place I'm sure she'll fly just fine

The best tip multiplex give is not to feel you have to try and bring the plane back to you - a good landing is better than a close landing!

TBH just go into powered flight I'm sure you'll be OK. if you can fly heli/quad then easy star will be simples

Don't worry about it too much. Elapor reshapes easily with steam/hot water and chunks glue back on really nicely
