My First Scratch build, what do you think?

I built this wing from pieces laying around my workbench and some Zagi tape.

Here are the specs:
24" wing Span
180 Square inches wing area (including elevons)
Zagi 400 motor
16Amp ESC
9.6V 800 NiMH battery.
AUW is approx. 14.5 oz.
I am going to use a 6x3 prop, not a gunther as shown.

I have also thought of putting a 280 motor, 5x3 prop, 5Amp ESC.

Does anyone know how to get the CG on this thing?
Is the wing area enough
Will this thing fly
