NEW!! M2000 Electric pushed!!!

Here I modified the kamdax glow fuel version to electric-pusher
Motor: himax 2015-4100kv
Battery: flytosky.net E-power 11.1v 2200mah li-poly(7-8C)
Two servos with Elevtron mixing
Good flying performance, but can do loop, maybe CG is not located good enough

Well that doesn't sound like a lot of motor and your prop is barely sticking past the sides of the exhaust! You probably don't have enough power to loop, plus delta wings have a lot of drag at high angles of attack so when you pull up you need a lot of energy to begin with. You don't have much more prop area than you'd have with a ducted fan! Maybe put a gear drive on it to swing a larger prop, but more power might help as well.

I'm with ED on this one. It's a delta wing, so it needs a certain amount of power just to get on step. If it seems to fly around with the nose up in the air then you probably dont have enough power. And not too familiar with all the himax but isnt that the really small B-20 type motor size? And isnt that basically a 4x2 prop?

I have a much smaller wattage mirage on a astro 020 and I'm running a prop that size and on slow speeds it wont drop the nose till it gets going. Your motor will be putting out alot less watts so it's probably low on power.

Oh also my Mirages have about 2 or 3 degrees up thrust, you might want to try this to see if it helps. They also have about 2 degrees uf reflex in the elevons.

The wattage Mirage 2000 has some wash out at the wing tip.
We may need to add some wash out on this Mirage 2000
to make it fly well. ALso, the power for that little Wattage
Mirage is about 200 watts. This Mirage 2000 seems bigger, heavier
so that "rated 100 watts" 2015-4100 may just barely drag this jet
around in the sky.

Want to make this Mirage 2000 sings? get some good power on it then.
At least as good as the power on the Wattage Mirage 2000 :-)

Yeah I would have gone 2T and 2s for alot of power but light weight, and would go 5x5 for spped or 6x3 foe good speed but with major vertical.
