Thanks everyone. Just goes to show that you should never give up on your VTOL model. Even like in my case when you should have stopped about two years ago

Stats are...

Wingspan = 31"

Weight with 2100 15c thunderpower 3 cell = 555 grams
Weight wtih 1800 40to50c Turnigy 3 cell = 580 grams

Motors up front are 1300kv blue wonders spinning CC 8" slow fly props.
Rear motor is (AD-100L Micro Brushless Outrunner 1850Kv) with recommended 6 inch GWS prop.

CG is about two inches behind front motors pivot point.

Video showing most of the controls and how the back motor shuts off automatically when in forward flight...
