This plane looks awesome. Has all the right qualities. The question is, was it
designed correctly? Anyone have one of these or footage of it flying?

You won't know until a well experience member have his hand on this thing and has first hand experience with it.

Look at the skywalker, the manufacturer bought out a few versions, his intention was to bring some improvement, but each version come with the changes but they also accompanied with flaws, some of the flaws were lethal.

Having said that, I am interested in this one!

Characteristics:

1.High strength body and wings
2.Large equipment and battery space
3.Fast disassembly components and adjustable tail distance structure
4.Big weight load and long time flying
5.Good mobility and stability
You indicate it's a "professional FPV & UAV EPO Aircraft." What do you mean by "professional?"

You also state it's "High strength body and wings." It is foam, correct?

Can this be offered with landing gears? Flaps would be helpful too, although it wouldnt be hard to modify it to add some.

+1 for the optional landing gear. I might look into putting one if I can get my hands on this plane. Just make sure it's beefy enough to take a few rough landings.

It should come with landing gear otherwise the tail will suffer most of the times during landing and the boom and fin will become hot replacement items.

I think with some proper skids it would be fine. I will not put landing gear on
mine if I get it.

I have been waiting for a layout like this ! Provided the foam is of good quality and strong ( would love it to be molded aerofoam ) I think this will work well and be a winner.

Please include fixed and lightweight landing gear !!

YES!

A couple of features I really like straight away:

1- It looks to be modular and has a well thought out connection method. I would pack into a small space and require relatively simple assembly at the field. What's needed is simple magnet or similar retention of the parts so you're not relying on fiddly bolts or rubber bands.

2- There looks to be plenty of space for a big prop. I really don't like the noise a 9" or smaller prop makes. I don't like bringing attention to my plane from bystanders.

Can't wait to see it in the flesh! I'd say you definitely need one G-banger
