I tested the model, and it didn't worked , but...

So this air injection thing works, but this is the problem. At low speeds the main wing able to lift off, but the stabilizer at low speeds don't do anything.
The other big problem is that the single prop makes the air injection asymmetric. The air behind the prop is spiral shaped, and it makes the whole thing complicated, and unstable.
As Jorge mentioned, two counter rotating prop on each wing could solve this problem. But I don't have smaller power system, and a bigger model would be problematic on our street.

The good thing is that my steerable motor mount worked great. I just simply glued the motor mount on the top of the servo arm.
