Home made thrust vectoring system w/ variable aperture

I was inspired by the X-31 thrust paddles. They looked simple and effective. My goal is to make an EDF that truly capable of hovering like the turbines. The model will be the Freewing Mirage. It'a AUW is reported to be 2,200g. I'm installing the Schubeler 80mm fan set up for 6S. With 4,000g of thrust I just might make my goal. I'm going to make a test setup t dial this unit in. Shouldn't be too difficult to program with my 18MZ. It will use 4, 7g servos with 27 oz/in of torque each. I'm shooting for a complete system weight of 65.3g. I may remove the rudder servo as it will not be needed. The TV will work as well or better than the rudder and it will work at zero airspeed.
