Of course I had a look at the components you used. Your motor is approx. 40g heavier than stock, your battery is approx. 100g heavier, and your ESC and servos may add additional 60g. The only real unknown is your wooden fuselage spar (most people would have used a light CRP tube here).
Whatever you do: Try to keep your model as light as possible. It is always easier to add some ballast than to add lightness.
