 I like the concept, though It looks really unusual compared to most of the tail-sitters - tall and lean as opposed to squat and, ah, stocky. I think it's going to turn out very nice.

Thanks Frank, to keep the COG about right (Whiffworld ? COG ?) I moved  the first engine forwards and the cockpit back to insert the second engine in order to achieve a sort of balance. Turned it into a long skinny airplane  :D
