Well I'm not set on the BUHOR, but I take it they have plans that the main wing doesn't need an airfoil? I have no problem building an airfoil since it seems straight forward.

As far as the mounting the engine straight that is for the info, since I have put ailerons on my wizard I haven't been graceful either lol

It does have a trick to it, in that you can't fly it too fast as the wing will shadow the horizontal stabilizer rendering the elevator useless. But usually you only need to back off the throttle until the starts working again. It is scary when it first happens as you think the servo quit working.
