I don`t think its worth it, at least as it is right now.
With no dihedral you must use ailerons, and i don`t see any in the pic.
One moore thing is that the horisontal stab seems to be too small.
I think it`s too heavy also, but with the right gear you might be flying,... fast, maybe too fast..

I love my ID.
It will fly. If you give it a dihedral and larger stab.
I don't think it is too heavy though. With all the electronics it will end up around 25g. It is not too heavy for 14" wingspan.
Finish it and prove that I am wrong.

You will need a 7mm motor or better.

Is the model your own design? As 'Jing says, with some mods to the tail & dihedral - give it a try If it doesn't fly well, you can still put the gear into your next plane - if you do like it and it flys well - you'll be addicted to micro models by then anyway!!!!
Let us know how you get on. Good Luck

Thanks for your help everyone.

I will try putting electronics in it. If it dosn't work i will put them in different plane.

Is this what you mean by dihedral?

yep, that's dihedral . Do you know what angle that is? You don't want too much or it'll get difficult to steer.
