Dont worry your not bursting my bubble, I know it has reflex. But its definitely not like getting your good old clarke-Y, whacking the cg to 20% and dialling in 5mm of reflex is it? Thats more what I was getting at, and wasn't that one of the problems the OP was trying to solve?I was simply saying that the problem has really been solved already, and if you want to play with a really interesting concept you may as well go with a proven method to get a plank to fly then try the pendulum system on that. Then at least you will be able to really see if it is making a difference.
IMO, YMMV, etc etc.
Although, looking at the pic of the nasa plane at the start, it does look to have a very flat bottomed foil- maybe it does have pendulums inside after all.
