Why Jedelsky

Seems that the configuration follows the MAC with simpler construction. Mean Aerodynamic Chord is the line in all airfoils that ultimately describes its shape and most of its characteristics. If you look at MAC as a hint about what to expect from a wing, you will see that Jedelsky will be fairly fast, fly inverted not worth squat, but physically will build in 1/4 the time of any other wing.

Also in the 60s, some Brighter Light experimented with "Skinny Lifters", sheet wings steamed to MAC to prove the lift characteristics of various airfoils; typical freeflighter, too much time on his hands...
