I wanna see the test flight!
Hats off to the guy for pursuing his passion. I just hope he doesn't kill anyone or himself trying to get that thing off the ground.
Wing chord looked decent, but absolutely zero (possibily negaive) wing dihedral means it won't be very stable along the longitudinal axis (at least its a high wing). Also, I can only imagine where the CG would be with that big motor way up front. If he doesn't have lateral stability, then longitudinal won't matter because he'll never get the nose off the ground. 4000 RPM without gear reduction means the prop is turning to fast to be efficient. Oh, and that front gear will collapse on the first bump and the vertical stablizer doesn't have enough surface area.
