First Stradivari flights

I've finally maiden my Stradivari, a competition DLG made in Italy by Claudio Zavagno who is the Icefire designer.
Will be my wind plane.
The wing is molded and made of rohacell, main chord is 19mm.
She's a bit on the porky side @ 320g...but the wing is extremely stiff.
I have balanced her on 80mm from LE with 25g of lead but is nose heavy right now.
She likes to fly with her tail raised because of incidences...stab incidence is positive here i need discover her thermal signaling habits

Here is a video:

Can you clarify a detail of the build foe me please?

Is a single rubber-band used to provide the spring return for both the rudder and elevator by being attached to both?

Great build. Nice model. What is the manufacturers website?

Stradivari is not an industrial product but you can contact the builder Claudiopapi.
