Just came across this thread. Great job @jpot1! Everyone loves a plane that doesn't look like it should fly, but flies great anyway. I wish you continued success with the design/build. I'm now watching this thread, so I won't miss any further updates. :)

That's just darn cool! It honestly doesn't look like it would fly. I love it! Got video of the V2 maiden? I'd love to see it in flight! :D
Not yet but hopefully this weekend. I’m now in the process of using the same basic wing shape but simplified into a kfm2 with a longer fuse. Trying for a Star Wars x-wing. I will keep the vstab but see how much of it I can remove through test flights to make it less noticeable.

Astron v2 flew great! Unfortunately no video. Will have to do that next time. Just need to polish up plans and I’ll post them.

The x-wing Star Wars prototype, not so good. The torque from the pusher prop wanted to roll it over and it planted in the ground.
