I used mine for parts to make a flying HISS.
The way I figure, the third engine under the cockpit would actually be used to maintain stability in VTOL and keep the nose from pitching downward too far during flight. That's why I figure it's actually pointed with a slightly downward angle.
Anyway, I honestly doubt it would fly without burning through a condiserable amount of fuel in small amount of time since it's depending on the engine exhaust to maintain it's flight at all times. That is, there's no great amount of wing surface to help create lift and glide. But then, I also think it has a better chance of flying with it's design than Trubble Bubbles do. Those look like they'd just do forward flips off the launch pad and crush in the cockpit and thus the pilot.
