Default Myan Flyer Mk-1 Design In-Progress

A contact wanted to know if I could design an airplane based on a picture he provided which showed a top and side profile of the craft. I decided to take on the project and this is what I have so far.

I am doing the design using AC3D and X-Plane 11.
I have decided to design this plane as a wood structured airplane with an internally mounted electric motor and ducted fan, with retractable landing gear.
I am planning on designing the tail and wings to be removable, so that the plane can be loaded onto a trailor.

So far based on X-Plane tests, minimum takeoff and flight speed is 100 knots (and why I decided on retractable landing gear). As I refine the design, certain aspects of the x-plane model (such as total weight) will get adjusted to reflect calculated values instead of gestimated values.

The first image is a render of what I have done so far for the structure of the craft.
The second image is the source image my contact provided.

So far I have gotten it to fly in X-Plane. Though I have made some alterations to the wing dimensions from what is pictured to provide proper lift for what im guessing the weight to be currently. I'll see about getitng some screen shots of the craft in X-Plane.

If my contact actually does build the darn thing, I'll be asking for pictures which I'll share.
