That should improve the climb rate no end.  ;D
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Is it going to be a STOL, or a STOVL or even a VTOL?

I think super STOL.  I have been wrapping my head around VTOL, center of thrust, center of gravity, trim, etc. and just can't imagine a workable VTOL.  I put the engines a little far forward, perhaps too far, but they look great there, and preserves the original wing mount.

Going STOL, you won't have to worry about 'puffers' then ----  ;)
