Hi Repsolal,
Looks pretty nice. If at all possible try to get and experienced pilot to look over your plane and maybe help with the test flight . Like you said crashing is no fun. A experienced pilot may see something that you missed that can help assure success. Most likely the biggest thing going against you is your lack of time behind the sticks, no fault of your own. Trying to fly a new plane before it's setup for optimum throws and CG just makes things discouraging.

When you throttle up, is there enough power that the plane want to pull out of your hand? You should have enough power that the plane will pretty much go straight up right out of your hand. If not double check to make sure your prop is facing the right way.
