Wow, that is *weird*. I suppose you could class it as a 'canard', but the fore-plane would seem to lack control authority...

I almost didn't even think it had any yaw authority either until I noticed that the rear end of the fuselage appears to have the ability to pivot like a rudder. How strange.

Well it has a long enough lever arm... the big issue is probably the movement of the centre of drag forward... it might be more stable flying backward??
