Interesting concept guys.

I'm into slope and DS, always after max efficiency (speed) over a broad wind range an air speed. I like the idea of replacing wing twist with a symmetrical tip.

This is a 41" Starfire EPP wing with 1 degree wing twist on a PW51 airfoil. I've had it flying in winds from 5-40 knots (wide range).

Do you think I could squeeze a little more speed (less drag) out of this type of wing over a wide speed range, by using symmetrical tip as opposed to washout ?
