I calculate the wing area to be exactly 288 sqin = 2.0 sqft
FWIW - I dont count the elevons as wing area on flying wings since they are not technically a lifting surface....they push down!

So the following numbers emerge:
AUW: 8.8 oz
Wing Loading: 4.4 oz/sqft
Power Loading: 124 watts/lb
Cube Loading: 3.1

All good numbers for a slow flyer with some spunk. We'll see how the reality pans out.
