Stumbled onto this little gem on Youtube - another early aviation concept that didn't pan out (partly because, at the time, they still didn't know enough about the dynamics of ducted fans). Think this basic design would make for an interesting design/build challenge?

I'm not sure it would make a good challenge for multiple people to participate in to build the exact same plane. This would make a really cool build project though. I have seen a couple of these on YouTube flying very well, even a little 3D hovering. There is some thrust vectoring inherent to the design that makes it awesome👍.
