Design sucks for an RC aircraft... wing shape is inefficient for low altitudes. You are better off doing an RQ7.... There are tons of designs for them.

I built and flew the Nitro/HK version with the molded fuse.
It was from an nice asphalt runway at Wenatchee WA.

That was many years ago , maybe 2010.

Anyway, it took off just great and after flying for a few minutes I decided it was time to
check out the flap effectiveness while still at a good altitude.
It immediately stalled which really surprised me.
It went into a flat spin and was NOT recovered. AKA - - - SPLAT !

I tried Nosing down and powering up and retracting the flaps and and and --- SPLAT !
It had NONE of that expensive and complicated autopilot auto-stable stuff.

I suspect that the design needs that kind of assistance !

Maybe at a lower wing loading it could be viable model , but ...

No one makes the RQ1 and all the old versions no longer sell for the reasons you have been given, make your own templates and design your own.

Use the fuselage and the wings and extend it out....
