Looks like you want to fly a very nice plane. Unfortunately your early flights will be very short. Please bring a friend with a video cam to record the results and post them for us to see.
Please find a large open field for your maiden since these go quite fast and it will make it easier to find the wreckage.
You should start with a super cub, you have a chance of flying and landing that, and almost no chance with the ducted fan.

Final word . . . GET VIDEO !

One lesson is to have a launcher with a clue. Hard and level to gain airspeed - not up at a steep angle
