    @Thecatbaron you could quite easily convert this into an early monoplane

    Hey you wouldn’t happen to remember the sb-4 enforcer?, well I was going to tag you kinda as a way to show how far I had come, back then I appreciated your kind words to my sorta basic build. It encouraged me to keep trying to get better and look at me now. I am slightly less of a potato. Btw the autoroll is ToTaLy just ending torque from having a single prop ;) @EternalDarkness

    Design is very nice, although that view-obstructing rotator on the hood was unnecessary. Power to weight ratio and lift seem good, although the plane is very nose-heavy and pulls to the left due to CoM being off-center. Adding around 150lbs to the right wing fixes the roll issue, while "pre-trimming" by angling the horizontal stabilizer would fix the nose heaviness.
