Pusher prop jet aerobatics
So while researching what to do for my next project, I came across this video
I know regular 3d planes are made for aerobatics like vertical tail stands and what not, but has anyone made a pusher prop jet this aerobatic? Are there intrinsic limits to a pusher prop design regarding aerobatics? I've seen attempts at VTOL with mid mount and front mount props that look a little silly to me like a flying christmas tree . I also know there is a trade off where slow fly 3d planes need low kv motors with large props for low end thrust vs. the high kv motors with smaller props for jet speed. I'd be fine sacrificing speed for aerobatics. The closest I've seen is RCFoamies alpha jet V2. I have to give them props (pun intended) for making a pretty aerobatic jet looking plane, but I was thinking more traditional jet fighter looks with 3d plane aerobatic capabilities.
Granted, I am not a 3d plane pilot and have never attempted a 3D build (yet). Most my builds are pusher prop jets from $tree foam, but I am getting to a point where I want to do more than just loops and rolls. I've built a few jets that can handle a decent knife edge, but there has to be more that can be done with a jet-like air frame. I'm also not yet at the point where I want to spend crazy $ investing in turbo jet engine models either.
I don't know, I might be just rambling, but let me know if anyone has any ideas.
In the mean time, I'm gonna throw a 1000 kv/10x3 prop on a 30" WS profile F22 and see what happens. Wish me luck!

Thanks su33. I forgot I ran across these a while back. Just getting into twin motor set ups (see my Hawk Eye) and their benefits. I've only tried differential thrust and have a blast with flat spins. I think my next build will definitely have dual thrust vectoring. Now to do some research on the best method for pivoting motor mounts.
