Default New - Vortex with canard system!

Hi guys,
I’m Filippo Materazzi, I’m 19 and I came from Italy.
I’m writing on rcuniverse for the first time…sorry for my English!
I’m the Italian F6A champion, I participated in EXFC in CZ (11th) and I’m also an F3A pilot.
I designed an interesting indoor-outdoor biplane called “Vortex”.
The real news is: it has canards!!!
Canards mixed with elevator have the normal function of canards, instead mixed with throttle can be used as a brake, moving on 90° when the motor is at minimum speed. With canards the model is more reactive, allowing you to steer it in less space and the manovreability is increased!
It’s really fantastic and I’m very satisfied!
The features are:
Wingspan: 33,46 in.
Length: 33,86 in.
Weight: 6.35-7.4 Oz
Servos: 2 BlueArrow (0.15 Oz) 1 BlueArrow(0.3 Oz) For canards: 1 BlueArrow (0.11 Oz)
Receiver: BlueArrow RX3P6-V3 (0.18 Oz)
Engine: Hacker A20/50S
Prop: 10x4,7 GWS
Battery pack: Flight Power 2S 350 mAh Evolite or Flight Power 2S 400 mAh
Controller: 6 Amp

What do you think about?

Here the video of the Vortex without canard system:

Cool idea yes.. Why is there no video showing it in action though?
Also, this plane reminds me a lot of the Equalizer..

Would love to see the plane fly with the canard working..

Because here it's always rainy or too windy![:@]
Some days ago I tried the Vortex with canards and..... it's fantastic....but my old Axi was not really powerfull. Now I will use an A20/34S Hacker for the outdoor version. Then I will make a new video....but not immediately.
