Do you think bending the trailing edge down like permanent semi deployed flaps would enhance the ground effect, because that was another thing that I was considering.
The Ram wing is more a square with a high angle of attack and the sides <tips> as you mentioned. I "think" the idea was to make a stalled wing <that would not climb into flight> that created a air cushion.
You are sort of between 2 designs, the Ram Wing.
and the ekranoplan
I am not sure how mixing the 2 would work.
I went with the Tandem <Jorg> as my first attempt, there was more information out about them at the time. Then I seen this model made with the Lippisch style on a video and I was really impressed with it.
Yes, distracted again.
