Thanks. Glad you like the name. It's mainly due to the flex in the wing. There is no carbon spar in the wing to save on weight. Also at some point in the testing the end of the ailerons were cut in a way that the trailing edge is farther from the nacelles which I think amplified the tilted in look.

I can try tilting them out a little next time to compensate for the wing flex. As for kits. I am looking into making flight boards and plans available. At the very least plans will be available.

Could you make a bicopter with a low kv motor like the Multistar 4822-390Kv,
replace the original shaft with a flybarless rotor head, thereby connect the main rotor directly to the motor?

That should - in theory - work, and the CG would be of less importance?
