Default Big engines!

I was going through some old pic's and found this thing that I had saved. I don't know who made it. It still makes me smile.

May be a slight prop clearance problem...

Prop clearance? i'm thinking this would hand launch easily, you could always dead stick the landing to save the prop. it should have unlimited vertical. also, the roll rate towards the torque side should be impressive.
