oh...one tip..the area between the thrust vector part of the elevon on the inside of the fuselage and the outside elevon part is very thin and will break easily..i taped and reinforced mine multiple times...if i were to build again i'd redesign that are..or even not use the TV section at all...plane looks better flying scale than doing drillbit spins

Thanks for the help. I agree with all you said and will make some adjustments to the plane.

That long nose is fragile and I did reinforce it some but will up the ante again.

It is a cool looker when flying.
Take offs are optional, landings are not.

yeah for sure..my problem was that for balance i needed my lipo pretty far forward..so it created a failure point if i landed it hard or nose up....just the weight of the battery snapping the foam 3/4 of the way back to the wing sections. And that thin point in the elevons broke almost every time i landed. If i were to build another i'd lose the Thrust vectoring sections in the middle of the body and just use the outboard sections for the elevons. You'd lose some slow speed handling but it would be stronger. And it wouldn't roll as violently! Looks killer in the air though!
