I built a second one using 9mm depron, adds about 1.5 ounces but stiffer, i used tape hinged controls and they work fine...can use e12 motors due to the heavier weight

Flights this morning were perfect.

I recommend a 1/4" 6 foot launch rod or rail to ensure stability especially in windy launches and the E-6RC aerotech reload motor.
I set 1" of movement for both aileron and elevator up and down, should have plenty of throw for compensating for the nose heavy condition, in fact I didn't need as much trim as I expected.

Here is the 9mm depron version, a little heavier, but still flies great, this flight on rocket power.
