Nice! Even looks seaworthy, with and without the wings.

Thanks guys
@ Coalhugger;
well...to share what I got in this.....I have tried many wings with different motor positions...if you keep it aligned with the central horizontal line of the wing...gives you the best balance and easy to find the right CG ( if this is your first time...I recommend you this method). Of course with this method your motor will be at risk of damage when u land...so you can use a folding prop and also fix some skid at the bottom to keep the motor clear from the ground when you land.
You can also keep it same rear month but with an angle downwards....so the thrust line passes through the CG of your wing! this is the best according to the motor and prop safety during landing....but of course the worst and hardest according to finding the right CG and aerodynamics of the flying.
You can find many useful material about "Motor Thrust Line of Flying Wing" on the net.
Wish you luck
Cheers

One more thing....that air intake which you fixed at the nose makes your wing a nice slow flyer but needs some down motor thrust...because it takes the nose up when flying and works like up elevator...to compensate that you need to give that down thrust to your motor

These are some new photos of the finished plane geared with FPV setup. And also a quick shot of the first test flight

I also tried my new open source head tracker on it...it was working just fine smooth with no drift!!

Hey Man...thanks for this info.

I am building 2 forward swept wings and of course
they have negative CG numbers at the root chord....
so I am researching 'pods' for batteries and electronics.

You have given me some ideas and I appreciate that.

Later,
Bob
