However, the LZ is not big enough to land something like my Speedo unless I ditched it in the Banksia's.
As for the Windrider planes and others, I have a philisophical problem with "secret" airfoils. They amount to a developmental dead end, and remind me of the so called "Patent Wars" of last century.
I have just been given a Zagi. Are they suitable for DS?

i got myself a bat and modified it with a straight trailing edge and some kite and ribbon spars and removed the reflex like some others on rc groups. its real stiff and needed very little nose weight to ballance. to say im stoked with it is an understaement. its a bit of work but its all been done before and well worth the effort
