Default SU-35 or any twin EDF with thrust vectoring

Anyone here experimented with an EDF SU-35 (or any twin EDF) using thrust vectoring nozzels? I figure that with tail flaperons, it would be a fairly straight forward modification to extend the control linkage for nozzel control....that way each nozzel would only rotate around one axis for pitch and roll control. Vectored rudder control would be the challenging part, but could be done by programing my DX7 with counter thrust (not very effective on my GWS A-10 though). Curious if anyone out there has contemplated this idea in an EDF.

I've seen the profile foamies and turbine OVT options, but I'd like to try this in the EDF arena.

Your suggestion is dead on but the nozzles on the Rafale are so close together there was no apparent roll control. You can however obtain noticeable yaw control by angling the TV paddles.

The trick is to remember that roll becomes yaw during high angle of attack maneuvers.

Did you mean something like this sucker? Both cones are able to control roll and pitch axis. The new version can cover all axis'.
