Hi everyone,

I came up with this design recently and I have some doubts that it will fly so I would like to ask for opinon here. Should I proceed with it or dump it? The concept is still in early phase so I thought to show in that phase while it's still fresh.
Looking foward for your comments,

The tail of your design will work... but having the thrust line up high can cause trim problems, or at least a loss of efficient cruise flight.  If your intention was to get everything out of the camera field-of-view, you'd probably be better off having a conventional fuse in the front (lower thrust line) and dropping the camera lower into the bubble.
