The plane flew excellent, but I made it in DEPRON, instead of balsa.

I wanted to try the design first in a quick build before going into detail.

You're doing great, congrats. Now carve a pointy nose out of Epp for it. It won't make it fly any better, but it'll look sexier.

I like the components hatch area, it isn't seen from above, keeps the airflow lines clean and probably forms a good launch handle. Triple usage and with flying wings, triple functions to any element is gooooood design

Thanks for the encouragements.

Note that the winglets are toe-out with 5°.
I know that some does not agree with the toe-out, but I tried both toe-in and out. Toe-out gives the best stability.
