Nice idea. Do the flight characteristics change a lot when you add the top wing?

Neat! I was thinking more along the lines of a 'convertaplane' like SVTOL or VTOL, but that's just as interesting!

Well, it turns more sharply since it is little top heavy with added wing But since it fly lot slower it is not a problem. I can make it perfect by moving RX to bottom but since idea here is to go from relaxing flying to 3D quickly I didn’t bother with it.

Thanks. There is no plan. It evolved during my experiment on “hollow foam structures”.
