Pete Goldsmith is the designer/developer of the Mystique. Long time sailplane enthusiast who was probably inspired by some of the classics you guys are referencing.

I assure you there's nothing sneaky going on with the airfoil designation. Pete probably found the airfoil in a reference book with SD in the designation and went with it, or he simply remembered it as SD even though it's actually just an S. This reminds me of the Bf-109 vs. Me-109 naming controversy!

Oh, and they were on the water before we announced it. That way we're pretty sure of the release date.
