Which motor did you go with?
Maiden for this should be easy, so dont over-think it....
Check CG..twice. Check all control surfaces are tight, slop free, and moving the right direction. Have a friend check all that stuff one more time if you can, as it is easy to get nervous and overlook something twice. Launch over tall grass or something soft if possible. Should be able to launch without power on this guy, then apply smooth increased throttle, (don't kick it in hard). Go ahead and put in plenty of expo too, as it cant hurt. I usually start with throws at ~20-50% greater than recommended, but with 40% expo.
