Tests for the anti-torque control surfaces in front of the propeller

 I'm testing the control surface effectiveness in front of the propeller. Since the propeller have a duct, theoretically the airspeed in front of the propellers is the same as the speed in the slipstream, so the control surfaces should have about the same effectiveness. This is to combine the strut and control surfaces in one element eliminating half of the surface drag.
