    I adore the concept and design of this aircraft, very unique and I might consider incorporating that engine structure into my own builds, very well done!

    Dude. This looks amazing!
    And it flies well too! The only thing I'm wondering... Is where are the ailerons and elevators?
    And the plane yaws a bit too much though... you should try increasing the Tail fin size~
