Default Chitty Chitty Bang Bang profile flyer

I've been working on a project to bring Chitty Chitty Bang Bang to life since about October of 2014. I wanted to build something "scale" to the movie, which meant having a front canard, pusher prop, stubby low-mounted bird-like wings, etc. At this point I have a working prototype and am trying to learn to fly it well...which isn't that easy since it flies more like a car (i.e. a brick with wings) than a plane. I thought some of you might enjoy seeing this, so here are a few videos:

The original test model (this includes a brief look at the design work, done on Google Sketch0up) -

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vCqQHo-eyWI And most recently, my first maiden flight outdoors -

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=msvWWGPPnUw I'm currently working with a friend to bring a reasonably accurate version of this to Phoenix Sim so I can continue working on my flying skills without destroying the model (I've rebuilt/repaired it more times than I can recall at this point!), and I'll be happy to share more if people are interested. Looking forward to your comments, critiques and suggestions!

-Bob
