A middle-weight fighter-bomber, 'Itsabirdy' is a complete rework of an earlier aircraft design.
It is highly maneuverable and responsive and it is built to take a fair beating.
However, in the event that the rear half should be shot off, (unlike the 'Sky Samurai') it loses much of its control.
A big step towards mitigating that happening was switching its strut spine out for a partial cube and rod configuration.
Otherwise, it is a very annoying flyer to come across.
