The thruster don't work!

I got a little work done today. I made up the steerable nose wheel and fit the servos. In the one picture, of the plane, it shows the jig that I used to cut blue foam saddles to surround the fan housing. One saddle is shown.
I've also enclosed a picture of the test stand that I use for testing thrust.
I've added another picture showing the jig and the resulting saddle. The yellow on the edge of the fan housing was highlighted to show an area I filed flat to fit the plane. Using the saddle reduces the stress applied to the housing which reduces the chance of distorting the housing and having impeller interference.
