The plane will have a very high P-Factor. adding a piece of tape, maybe with a metal wire, like from a bread wrapper, to stiff it up around 15 degrees, to the starboard wing, and adding a trim tab to the Rudder, again, around 30 degrees to the right, looking down, from the top with the nose pointing forward. This is because as the plane rises, the propeller blade going down will be going faster cutting into the wind, than the other blade, is going downward, more in the direction of the oncoming air. This causes the planes to flip over. Some people build this into the elevator. With a pure glider, this is not an issue, it's only when you add a prop. The propeller unwinding also adds torque, which these add-ons will help alleviate. The end result, if done properly, will be a straight, long flight, with the plane slightly yawed, and when the prop stops, the plane will enter a smooth circle back to you. Very nice looking plane. The wheels look nice, but should probably be removed before flight, as they look at bit spindle, and will probably break. If it is a static model, leave it just as it is. That would look great sitting anywhere!! Great Job!!
