Just set it up according to the manual and go from there.
It even tells you to just sight down the wing with some sticks on the ends to see if there is a twist.
Keep the plane light, it doesn't need to be over powered at all.
I liked the plane but did not like the short tail moment characteristics.
Here's the manual in case you don't have it already.

Awesome! No wing wrap any more, massaged it out and my total Flying weight is 25.75oz. I'm pretty pumped to maiden it when the weather finally cooperates!

Bad right roll

I did check for a twist couldn't find any so I glued all together. I went for a test flight today. Man I had a tough time with this plane , it rolled to the right violently. I did get it down in the bushiest, in on piece. I'll take off the SFG and check for any other twist, If I can't find any, I'll put some weight on the left wing and putt putt around.

Be careful with this one. It's very short. These short tail moment planes can be a handful. I'm all into 3D and can do all the moves. It took me 3 flights to pull the guts on this one and sell it for $40 bucks. This is a matter of love and hate. I hate short tail moment planes and this has to be the one I hated most.
There are much better choices in the same size and price.

Would you mind elaborating on the flying characteristics of a short tail plane? I was considering the Sbach 342 (900mm) but this peaked my interest. I've flown 3D for many years but have been out of the hobby for a few years and planning and getting back into it with something EPP. Your inputs are appreciated!

Short tail planes are more pitchy/pitch sensitive. Hovering is no where as stable compared to a more so called normal longer tail moment plane. Low speed stability is compromised. CG is more critical. A short tail plane has a faster tail reaction and is proportionally more sensitive.
Think of the short tail like a short lever compared to a long lever. Do yourself a favor and just get something more conventional in proportion, length vs wingspan.

Update...... Well... i pulled out the electronics and sold the airframe... Too much for me to handle as a first 3D.. had 17 flights on it and came to the conclusion it was more stressful for me to fly than fun. ill pick 3D up again at some later time... maybe a profile EPP yak for HK or something. oh well.
