Mark and Stuart, thank you for the reply.

I do fly Thermal Sailplanes and that has given me many hours of building and flying enjoyment.
I love to build also, and have been building model airplanes since 1964.
What i would wish to stay away from is printing and taping pages together, I have limited computer skills and no experience with CAD.
So i will seek out a memory stick or get some help making a disc to take to local office supply.
I dont have a winch, but do have a large High Start, I fly alone at home,
this is my main reason for interest in Electric Launch.
I would also prefer wood construction over foam.
So back to this process of having plans printed, I am willing to learn but may have some elementary questions for this group about this process.( first question how large of a memory stick do i need?)
I would like a Horten type wing design that fairly stable in flight.
so before I decide on a design, I was thinking tailess without vertical stabilizer or rudder.
Mark, I did look at both links you sent for planes and I thank you. I was looking more toward something without turned up wingtips, but with a swept wing.
I will look at Cpdudes blog next.
Am I being unrealistic in my quest ?

Thank you both for your answers
