Hey! New here. Showing off my scratchbuilt FFF plane! Tell me what you think

#1
So I decided to build a plane out of my spare quadcopter parts and some foam and servos etc. This is what I came up with. Its pretty crude, and I havent flown it yet, but finished it today. I'm not sure if I should add ailerons. Btw, this is my first build, and I have never flown any RC plane before (only helicopters and multirotors) but im familiar with the concept. Gonna paint it red (if it flies)

Specs:
1000kv motor
10x4.5 prop
2200mah battery (3cell)
30 amp esc
8ch reciever/transmitter
whole plane scratchbuilt without plans out of Fan fold foam and a few wooden pieces
credit card control horns
9g servos
sterl wire control rods (will be uskng pianowire from now on) image.jpg image.jpg

Crap, forgot the dihedral. Funny thing, I was wondering how people could only fly with rudder and elevator while I was building this. Ailerons it is!

So I tried taxiing today. Looks like my wheels got demolished. But At half throttle (while holding it) it managed to hover. So it has enough power, thats for sure! image.jpg

I was finally being able to make it go in a straight line. So I decided to do a takeoff. I noticed my elevator was inverted, so I went to quickly fix that. The controller glitched as the plane ended up going full throttle sideways into a car (it was ready for the junkyard so no probs). Ended up destroying itself, ripping off the wing, damaging the internal mountings etc. Not sure if I will bother repairing as Im already working on a flying wing and a glider. R.I.P greenie
