Thanks, HerkS -

I glanced through the text a small bit and it looks fruitful. I'm no engineer so no convenient thought to continue with mine other than very basic understandings. I had not considered having the rudders coupled with ailerons, coming to mind after reading some of the discussion about that. Still think I'd want them just on the left stick alone.

I had changed plans to go ahead with a couple 400 class motors - that was at least four years ago. That would change again now to outrunners of similar power. Used the scale airfoil as best as I could plot it.

Now, I'm rolling on with interest in factory made foam warbirds so the flying wing passion is rather dim. I was initiated to the 'wings notion by having a school mate all through primary schooling whose father was the flight engineer on the XB-35 (O.H. Douglas). They had moved to Kansas around 1950 for him to work at Boeing-Wichita. I remained intrigued by them for a long time. Maybe it will come up again.
