Thanks a lot for your kind assistance everyone!

I'm particularly interested in amassing as much technical data on existing aircraft as possible, because my supervisor wants me to build a database of existing aircraft for useage in my optimisation calculations.

Therefore I'm especially interested in a breakdown of component weights, some idea of the design load factor of the aircraft, the engine thrust and the cruise speed, so that I can get an idea of the sort of L/Ds that are possible at these low Reynolds numbers.

I'm particularly short on data about the cruise speed of aircraft at a range of weights, which would enable me to calculate a reasonable Cl.

Again thanks a lot for all your help.

Matt
