Butch, I'd like to ask you a question also. I like the little ToonJet puller you built back in February. Have you ever considered building something similar but with the wings at a forward sweep? You would need to extend the nose a little more to adjust for a more forward cg, but it would look really cool.
I recently built a FSW pusher wing and it flies just as good as any rear-swept wing.
Here is an example. This one isn't mine, but it's much prettier than the one I built.
