Is my Scratch Built a good 3D trainer?

I have not flown 3d... but that didn't stop me from making a scratch built plane over XMAS from fanfold foam...

Evaluate my design and let me know if there are structural mistakes I made that will prevent me from learning how to 3d..

It is powered by an AXI 2212/34 and 3s Lipos (etec and irate)

It weighs about 12 oz all up...

* Note... the nose flaps of the plane folds in to cover the battery along the lines

It flies predictably and is stable pretty slow

All Fanfold... No carbon spars.. Prett sturdy though because of the way the fanfold was folded..

Nice plane.. The only thing I would be concerned with is the size of your ailerons and rudder. They may be a bit to small.

Rudder size

I was thinking that the rudder might be too small too. I have been trying to hover and knife edge, and I think it might be causing me some difficulties..
