Doesn't seem to fly too bad... that said, I suppose I would have given it somewhat larger wingspan & chord just to make flying easier, but well done.

I did make the wings with a larger cord, but decided to make it more narrow so it looks ridiculous just like the cartoon plane. Its a bit of fun and a friend is making the mutley one.

Kevvy It does appear to fly very well! But we are not at the Control Sticks! A Good Pilot can Fly just about anything If you will remove the Anhedral in the Bottom Wing and give it the same amount of Dihedral as the top Wing then it should be a Blast to Fly The Anhedral in the Bottom Wing will cause it to be very unstable! The Fix may be as simple as just shorting both Wing Struts the same amount
You did a very nice job building it and the Detailing is Great! And... your Flying ability shows off in the video When you get the Bottom Wing fixed we all will be expecting Plans
