Not sure where to put this but..... I've seen it before and I have an idea how to do it but any one tried it yet? Mount the motor at the rear in the center and use it as an elevator and just keep the out side elevators fixed and use the ailerons or make the outside elevators work as the elevators.
Whats the thoughts on this?

It would work. You definitely would still want an elevator control surface, though. Otherwise, you would have no pitch control when throttle was off, say when landing!
