Ring wing models can be great fun. A friend has an RC one that I have flown for him a few times. It is a canard type, with a smaller ring on the front of the long stick fuse and a larger ring at the back of the fuse.

Yours might be the first I have seen with four rings.

I noticed that you call it a wingless aircraft in your video title. Technically not true, as the rings serve as wings.

If you do a google search for "circular wing model aircraft", you get a lot of ring wings and a number of horizontal circular wings.

If it flies, I can crash it.

See "Annular Wing".

Looks a little tail heavy, or maybe it needs some different incidence angle front/rear so it doesn't fly at such a high AoA.

Cool plane though. No one else will show up with one, that's for sure.

Still needs to be set up.
