The minimoa is quite a bit heavier than the radian. Do you have any info on wing area or wing loading?

Thanks,

I would say each wing is 7" x 36" on average (give or take an inch here and there) ......

so two wings will equal 504 sq inches or 3.5 sq ft ......

using Honda's auw of 38.25 ozs gives a wing loading of 11.0 ozs per sq ft or approx 33 gms/dm2 .......

not sure how this would rate for RC Gliders ......
