That was the first version of the Flyguy with elevons for legs. The feet swivel back for landing and faceplants. Later one had the arms swivel for ailerons and the shoes swivel for rudders. He did take off vertically once which was the purpose of the big shoes. I may build a bigger version. Here's another experiment for a reversable, varaible pitch prop. The prop didn't work very well but the plane was a geat sucess. Sort of a slotted prop Pizza Box.
