What bad aerodynamic characteristic does the MJ have? I know it likes to torque roll left under power, and stall the air over the top of the LE if too much up elevator is applied, but the first problem will go away with no motor torque, and the second should go away as the wing loading of a slope version will be a lot lower??

You were asking about the suitability of the Micro-Jet as a slope soarer. I am sure if you have a look at some PSS (Power Slope Soarers) models, you will see what it takes for good performance (Hint: high aspect wing ratio, glider wing section, etc. ).
