Thrust vectoring on a flying wing

If modern fighter jets can have thrust vectoring, maybe RC flying wings also can get one? I’ve decided to test this theory and equip my very old DIY Depron flying wing with a motor tilting mechanism that allows changing the vector of an RC brushless motor and propeller and vector the thrust. My goals were:

  • check if it works at all
  • check if thrust vectoring would improve the flight
  • check if pitch control can be done only with thrust vectoring
  • check if yaw control can be done this way
