Single Sheet Elevon based RC Aircraft

I recently built a sci-fi themed elevon prop-in-slot single sheet Airplane. My goal was to use only one sheet for an airplane that could fly with some of my smaller quadcopter motors, it weighs under 190grams (without battery). It uses a 5050-3 bladed propeller.
It flies great with either a 3cell 850mah or a 3cell 450mah battery even though the 850 is almost twice the mass of the 450. With the 450 it is so light that if you cut the throttle and pull the elevons back 50% the aircraft floats to the ground as light as a ball of tissue. Despite it’s aggressive appearance it is extremely forgiving to fly, and is suitable as a trainer.
