    Not a blended-wing-body, not a flying wing, what category would this airframe fit into?

    Regardless this is very well made and i love this, great work!

    This thing lands so smoothly and I'd argue that without payload it doesn't even need the 'chutes.
    I could land this at Bandit with an 160 approach speed and stop with runway to spare! Absolutely awesome build.

    That has got to be the strangest rudder design I've seen but I love it.
