I like the blockiness of it, but I feel like it looks too much like ground vehcile. Also, round rotors stand out, because they aren't blocky, so maybe you can make them hexagonal?
And how about changing this smal visor for actual (buy still blocky) cockpit?

::) That's a real chunky brute, but then it's not meant to fly at high speed so that's fine.
Like to see a quad fan arrangement, like a modern camera drone myself, rather than the twin-fan which has been done to death. It would also allow for a rear gunner in the place of a tail as well.

Got a shot from other angles? I'm looks decent but not amazing at the moment.

Can you make the weapons look like they can move around more to fire? The top turret for sure looks like it can onlly move left to right but not up or down which isn't as bad on a ground vehicle, but seems impractical on an aircraft. Having the lower gun able to move rather than having to move the entire facing of the aircraft to fire at fast moving targets seems more practical too.

I'd go for an acual cockpit too (it can still be angular).

Some changes - hexagon engines, sloped cockpit and windows, small wings on intakes, hexagon landing gear, pistons on sides of cannons - the rest hasn't been messed with. What do you think of these changes?

A second sets of engines like a drone are a good idea - but I think I will save it for a heavy bomber type.

Looking good, but I much preferred the round engine cowling.

You guys are right, round rotors look better.
I like the additons, but the angle of cockpit looks weird to me. Maybe if you just remove the visor without changing the angle of the piece. Just a suggestion

Some more tweaks - I'm digging the look.

Thoughts?

Dunno what you changed but I like its look. I still think the cockpit should have different angle.

Likewise. Other than trimming down the tail fin I can't really articulate what's different, but it looks a lot better.

Cockpit is a HUGE improvement IMHO. I do prefer the round engines though I think the hexagon landing gear looks great.

(I'm still keen on a four-rotor look myself, so what does my opinion count for? :) )

Are those flyers going to be sold individually or in packs? When will they be available.

In packs of 3. No idea on release date or price yet.
