Unnamed 30mm EDF Jet

Hi, all. I recently got the motivation to make a few modifications and adjustments to what was originally a Bandit EDF scaled down to fit a 30mm fan unit, a fan unit originally pioneered and tested by NitroCharged here ( http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1742619 ).
I have since modified the plane to look more like a Futura EDF in hopes for more stability and aerobatic performance. Eventually I may add a gyro to the mix to see if she will knife-edge. For now, she flies fast and straight. I have not named the design yet.
It remains unpainted at this time, as I usually wait until I know planes will fly before I paint them. So far, I have one successful test flight in the bank. First few launches were a little rough and I had to make an adjustment to the vertical stab because it was yanking hard left and rolling out before I could gain control.
Currently, I am painting the plane and waiting for my girlfriend to be able to attend the field with me for a flight video.
