Interesting! The lack of vertical fins is risky
Looks great though!

That's what I was thinking... I can only think of the B-2 bomber but this is narrow and looks fast.

When is it time for the flight test?

I would try to set up a system on the wings kind of like most rc b2's have of so sort of spoilers on top and bottom to induce drag on the wing tips and keep it tracking straight

Although this is a pusher prop, check out Clickety's build thread--
YF-23 Black Widow, Grey Ghost

https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show....php?t=1854129

He did a great amount of experimentation to get his to fly correctly-- worth the read.

Looks interesting! Well done, but I think you need some vertical stab(s) for stability.

what i am hoping for is to obtain stability as the yf-23 does

Unfortunately the nose is very long giving a lot of surface area.
Pretty sure it won't fly very long.
