It looks really great because of the paired forward-facing aerofoils, but the top-mounted SMGs won't be very useful on an flying aircraft since it's usually meant to fly above targets. That being said, the other guns have a lot of blockage too, so its overall range is rather limited. I like the redundancy on rudders and their placement though, which account for stability, especially since the two forward-facing aerofoils don't help very much with handling mid-air.

Great design though, good creativity.

The top smg is meant for dogfighting bombers.

Ah, I see. There was nothing in the description about that, but it would make sense. However, that makes me wonder why there are bottom-mounted SMGs too, and why they are roughly equal in number. It seems the goal is to make it front-oriented for focused fighting while chasing enemies down in aerial combat, but that limits the range by more than a bit.

I don't want to criticize too harshly because it would sound non-supportive, but if it was meant for bombers (which was not specified in the description) then it should have mostly or at least more top-mounted SMGs, and if it was meant for air-to-ground attack, then vice versa. Having both in equal amounts while using front-mounted aerofoils to give a length-wise resistance to aerial maneuver means staying more fixed on the long axis and concentrated fire on that axis, with the easiest movement being a barrel roll. This implies a few things, but I just wanted to raise that point if its purpose was to dogfight bombers.

At the end of the day, it's a great-looking build and it seems to have a good amount of performance, so I like it. If there was something I missed, or if there is more to be said about it, then I'd love to hear it. I really am interested in flyers and their movement capabilities.

How do the front mounted wings affect control?

They make the robot stable along the axis of the forward-facing aerofoils, so it tends to roll, as gtstarwars stated. It really does prefer that over every other movement, so elevation thrusters at the front will have a harder time lifting up the nose or even lowering it with gravity's help. Overall other stability is minimal, but it looks great, lol.

I still wonder about those forward mounted Aerofoils but otherwise the bot is sexy!

yeah, they're not the best performance-wise in most cases (unless you want to do a lot of barrel rolls), but they look amazing, haha

What effect do they have on flight?

Ratings 8.0 practical and 10.0 creative0

They favor barrel rolls (roll) and make nosing up and down more difficult (aka pitch). Think of aerofoils as flat sheets that resist air whichever way their flat side is pointed. Since the forward-facing aerofoils are long "rectangles", their longer length hits more air as the flyer tries to elevate up or down from the nose, so it makes that maneuver more difficult. The orientation of this flat sheet means the easiest maneuver would be to spin in a circle with its axis going up and down the pilot seat (yaw), but this is not possible with flyer controls because they rely on rolls from left and right-sided aerofoils and rudders to steer in a direction. This results in favored barrel rolls while adding in a slight yaw from the upright rudders at the rail, so it sort of spirals. You can also think of aerofoils as long rods which favor spinning around that rod's axis and resist spinning against its long side.

TL;DR: The "effect they have on flight" is that the flyer will do barrel rolls more easily, and its nose will not go up and down as easily. I've already hijacked PandaVengeance's robot page enough as is, so please message me if you'd like me to explain more.

My pleasure to give this interceptor a 10 in creativity. However, if I may ask, how durable is this design, and, how hard is it to handle? It certainly looks like it has the speed and the weapon placement to play its role correctly, but I feel like I can't make a completely accurate review without a video or more evidence (can't rent, bad timing during the week). Just curious, because quite honestly, I feel like making something like this for a practical interceptor some time soon.

Ive built a similar concept bot (with foils pointing straight forward) it tends to roll rather than turn and its slow af, however, flying up and down is perfectly fine. I guess its just alot of drag

yup, yup. it barrel rolls for days, lol. i made one of these types too, so i can attest to that.

vertical aerofoils are the cause of that. they give a smooth wide turn which would be good if she were high altitude but with smgs that ruins the point of bombing from a great distance
