Can someone convert the wing area and wing loading for me?
The MH32 airfoil has had a very good following. The Agea, and I belive the original Mantis, had MH32 airfoils. I fly in the Eastern Soaring League and they have been very popular with pilots in the ESL. wwwlflyesl.com
Liberator, your story sounds similar to mine but you may have more experience. I have been flying for about 3.5 years, do a lot of training of new pilots, though most are on small electric planes. I have been flying ESL contests for 2 years but have not been real serious about it. This year I moved from an old Airtronics Legend ( 2.9M and 78 ounces) to a bagged wing plane at 3.1M and 58 ounces. What a difference!
Best of luck with the new plane. I know I will be following the build!
