I Love my Pusher Jet!

I finally built a successful pusher jet and can't stop flying it. I had always been into the 3D and slow flying planes since beginning the hobby, and had tried unsuccessfully before to build a pusher jet. . I built it from one piece of blue fan fold from lowes, and there's only about 25 bucks of electronics in it, not including the transmitter and receiver of course. These little stick mount motors from HK are great. I really enjoy the sound and speed of this jet. I'll think I'll call it the Green Demon. It's my own design that I just drew out on the foam after looking at several google images of RC jets.

DJ, how do you manage with massive tailerons like that ? Is it 'expo' off the scale and 10% rates. Looks like it goes really well, I might try something similar but don't think I could cope with half the wing moving

Hey, and thanks for commenting! ..those tail surfaces are big, but I can always take some off...it's harder to add more later. ....26% rates and expo set at 70%...It will turn quickly and you still have to be gentle on the sticks. I ended up cutting some off of the part directly behind the plane, but left more out on the edges...and it really seems good to me now...of course, I really don't have much experience with jets to compare it with anything else.
