Yep, the main problem i have with the graphs used by Fertis in his patent are that there is no explanation of where they came from. I don't even see any statement definitively stating they are taken from actual wind tunnel tests, they may purely be Fertis's thoughts on how the airfoil 'might perform'. Any proper scientific testing would have full details of the apparatus used to perform the tests, when they were done, under what conditions and by whom.

taken on face value the graphs look good but there again Fertis has a vested interest in making his invention look good. I'd be looking for some better backup for his data, otherwise they could for all we know have been made up on the spot.
