You may want a bigger vertical tail. It's going to have elevons, right??
You may also need to add some vent holes so your components don't fry.

Otyher than that, it looks great!!

Do you have any plans for it?

if you plan on making it fast, make sure you add spars across the wings...other than that, should be fine.

yup that is a good rudder! It seems like wit the right gear, I would make for a very fast parkflyer!!

You need to lay out all of the pieces flat in the PDF, I think. Not so sure myself. Maybe a pro like Tony or Freddie B might be able to help?

You're going to need your battery to be right up to the nose for proper CG.
