Any basic VTOL principles to keep in mind? I'm particularly interested in length of fuselage for stability, and size and shape of control surfaces.
I'm thinking to make a round version of this encased in a rod sphere:
ElectriFly VFO EP ARF - Setup Techniques & Flying Tips (8 min 4 sec)

The ball would be shorter/wider, with rounded control surfaces, and the cage would raise teh CoG. I'm worried about stability.
I hope to use a blue wonder setup, 8040 prop, 3s, 9g servos.
Would it work???
