This was going to be my entry to the tournament, but I lost hope in it.
I spent around 2 days perfecting this beauty for the it (that's why I didn't upload yesterday), until I couldn't shave off anymore seconds from 1:35 without it crashing.
As always, hope you enjoy!

(P.S. Is this considered a Hypnoplane? Or a new style?)

    @Flightsonic Hmm, lift should stay equal when they are all flat bottom. Weird.

    @Flightsonic Good point regarding trim. Excellent design :)

    @Flightsonic You probably have semi-symmetric or flat-bottom wings somewhere in the front? They gain lift from speed. So at higher speed, the lift in the front will become higher.

    @PhilipTarpley That's why you guys put trim! :D Before, it kept pitching down no matter what, then it pitches up now, I have no clue why

    Handling doesn't get much better than this aside from the tendency to pull up at max throttle.

    @BRuthless Really? Probably due to drag

    @Flightsonic My design with VTOL and J50 beats my design with one or two BFE300. :D

    @BRuthless I probably needed to use the BFE300 instead of the '150 and VTOL

    Couldn't get lower than 1:35? That's sad, it looks so great. My designs started at 1:15. I think going below 1:10 comes with too much risk in crashing, but I'm still testing.

    It's more Hypno than a plane I'm working on and I thought it was kinda Hypno styled.

    I remember when I first got SP, I was so confused at this style. Now it seems kind of normal to have weird planes. Nice job
