I have an interesting problem with the model. I put on the motor temporarly for some ground tests. I held the tail of the model, and gave throttle. The motor had an angle to right to eliminate prop torque, so the left wing had more air injection, than the right wing. So I thought the model will turn to the right. But no, the model turned left and not just a little bit (I held the tail). Then I put the whole motor mount to the left with 3 mm. It still turned left. I tried to put the rest of the electronics to one side, and then to the other, but nothing changed... Perhaps one-prop air injection is not a good idea.

Slow speed turning is still a problem.

Perhaps I will leave air injection. It will be still "experimetal", since it has higher aspect ratio, high AoA wing with smaller wing area.
