I think it looks cool,what size fan are you planning to use?After having quite a few sport jets,the one thing I wish they had was more room for batteries up front,but still achieve the proper CG.Does not need to be high speed setup,just enough batteries to fly 6-7 minutes without worry.I have enough jets that fly fast for 3-4 minutes...

Like the anhedral mod to the stabs!

I'm thinking 90mm with a 40" length and 36" span. 22mm wing for retract options, and battery space directly above the wing and forward. That pushes the fan back into the empanage which should help with balance, especially with a 6oz inrunner. I may route one out in foam via CNC and see how it balances.

The long nose is for looks but will help to keep the nose gear forward. I havent calculated the area on the intakes or added radius yetbut I will and make necessary changes, but the exhaust is about 75mm. The batteries will probably have to be above the wing to make CG, and maybe spill over into the nose for higher power with a heavy motor. I'm a fan of <6lb. 6S setups with unlimited vertical and minimal investment.

Here I opened it in Fusion and it has a more presentable look.

Looks great but I would change the canopy too. Also it is pretty small for a 90mm fan. I found this out with my Plenum sport jet, it landed at mach 1. The bungee launch model wasn't as bad but it was about 12oz lighter without retracts.

If this will be a bungee jet, consider moving the stabs up on the fuse.
Less chance of damage during the landing phase.!!
