    @JelloAircraftCorporation I deleted my old accounts in a rage quit. Won't do you any good to know the name unless you're overly familiar with what I had built before. Keep the guesses coming and I'll out myself when someone's correct.

    If you don't mind me asking, what was your old account? You're clearly a very talented builder, and I was wondering if you were a well-known user.

    @CustomAircraftMods Thanks, as others have pointed out, this is a first post, not a first build. They're playing guess the platinum right now XD I've been gone for quite some time.

    @Chancey21 I use stylistic elements and techniques that I think they use as well. Also I agree, it is STOL but there's a lot of room for improvement.
    I had considered reducing fuel weight (barely burns anyways with "electric" engine) and maybe increasing wing surface area but I felt that would kind of be cheating. Not that there's rules or anything but OCD said no.

    Do see some mikoyanster in this... technically it is stol; it can takeoff in 500 feet... but it isn’t very good stol for its size @jamesPLANESii @PlayingSimple
