Thanks to Don Stackhouse @ DJ AeroTech, I now fully understand how to properly bludgeon a " poor lil renolds' number!" I will be posting of the math issue, as I now know how I goofed on the main wing incidence setup!
go down a few spots on my blog, it's right there, as plain as day!.

The 2-3 Meter Hobby Lobby High start has lots of snort! at this point, I can't quite agree with claim of stretching it 5-6 X length! That will take more muscles than this wimp!
Mr Kite's 'chute still blossoms perfectly!
Now to sort out the poor math for an eliptical wing, I think I know what I did, just need to confirm it!

The wife and I had the Family over for dinner today, which was a perfect setup for the True Maiden flight. I have rebuilt the Canard bell crank, using a slotted drive, and fixed point of rotation instead of the previous idler arm for the 2 radi- (bell crank and Canard actuation).
