Here's something to think about

In my old RCMW Sports column, we called them "WOW" - Wierd, Oddball, Wondrous.

This has to be one!

Dereck,

Ok, I agree, it is weird, it is a pusher but the engine is up front. How can you tell which is forward. It is going to take a while to get use to the shape. Good candiate for e-power, but I would put the prop at the L.E.

Or for added fun, make the leading edge out of razor sharp aluminum...

On later, more gathered thoughts.

Not far off the Lee Richards Annular Wing?

I wonder owinel you figure the wing area?

16 cells, geared AF15 or similar breathless?

Wish I'd thought of it

Roy L. Clough had a similar design 40 years ago with a Jetex 50 that flew rather well.. for what it was.
Similar "slot" behind the wing center.
This one looks a bit area shy though.
It would be an interesting thing to try, with the caveat that seeing the front end will be difficult once it gets any distance away..
