Hello Everyone!

I am close to the finishing stages of building my first RC Plane. I 3D printed it and trying to do my best, researching which electronic parts I needed. I still don't have the grasp of the math yet on how to pick the parts so I hope some of you can look at my build and tell me where I went right or wrong. All comments are greatly appreciated!
