Challenge complete...but how will it fly?

So, spent a couple hours last night and I finished the $7 EPO glider which I now call CheapoGlider. I reinforced the horizontal stabilizer with a CF rod, the wings and fuselage with a wooden dowel.

I mounted a Turnigy 2826 2200 kv motor with some upward thrust angle in the mid section. Added elevators and ailerons made out of dollar tree foam board with a couple of chepo-servos. Extended the vertical stabilizer with Foamboard.

Covered parts of it with white, red and yellow duct tape (also from the $ store). Mounted the battery in the front embedded in the foam to get the CP at about 1/3 of the wing chord.

Any predictions?
