Saw a photo of the RC version of the Moller Sky Car the other day. Will try to find it again and post it on here.

i dont have one but i have flown one on a sim. It was fast in a strait line but was very sluggish when you turned.
I have no idea how accurate the sim was though.

I have this one. Mine is covered in all silver. It flies nice! lots of wing area. I added a 2nd engine to the nose and I love this plane. Only one like it at my flight club.

Here is what I'd consider unusual, with the inlet on top. I've not seen many of them. Model of a North American F-107A.
