Yeah, what happened? It looked good there for a while.

Something must have broke for it just to fall out of the sky like that.

There were a few problems that I came to a conclusion with:

1. When the fan was on full throtle it would move around in it's place, so that it wasn't just putting thrust out the back it was more of a downward thrust.

2. The thrust tube was to long, it went tight under the elevator so the only time the elevator would work is when it was going fast.

3. Not enough throw on the control surfaces esspecially for the elevator when it was about to crash I was on full up on high rates.

Im working on designing a new one which I will call: EPP Falcon jet v2
so I'll upload some pics of the new plans.

j3tman,
