I did not know that - learn something new every day. Thanks, Charles!

You might want to take a look at the Star Cobra thread in the Scratchbuilt Foamies section. Sounds like a similar design with a low wing and high canard. I know I learned some things by reading that thread which I applied to the J1-31 (notably, that a canard near the COG doesn't lift well, and works best with the linkages mixed with elevons).

Let us know how your work progresses!!
