Default An Awesome Pusher Jet foamie i made!!!

Well was bored out of my mind, drawing random planes and i drew one and im like hmmm should try it,

so i did and i got the plane below,
has 3 main problems
1) structure is weak(so it had some bad first test flights no real damage however)
2) something like either its CG or how far my CG is from my elevons it has a bad case of stalling when you slam the up stick command
3) bad tendency to roll over on first throw so you gotta throw it straight up with like 1/3 power and roll out

aside from all this however i have a great/fast flying plane!! i was able to chase 50mph cars with this bird(WOT of course) but this is on a 1020kv motor with a 8x4.3in prop!

And the best part is is that it protects the prop and it belly slides for landings and its pretty durable since i crashed like 5times in the grapes(most just 360 stalling flat spins) this was due to the weak structure

but im sure ver. 2 will be much better!
this plane is still in one piece and it goes straight up!!!

this will be on my scratchbuild entry list hehe
