I was looking at the E-Flight Blanik web page and the specifications show 22 lbs. and 2030 sq. inches of wing and a wing loading of 19.2 oz./sf. Doing the math I come out with 24.9 oz./sf. My Blanik is 23 lbs. with a wing loading of 26.1. Am I doing the math right or could E-Flight be adding the stab area to the equation.

I used their wing area and come up with this in an "as tested" configuration for my review.

WINGSPAN: 162 in.
WING AREA: 2030 sq. in.
FLYING WEIGHT: 22 lb., 3 oz.
WING LOADING: 25 oz./sq. ft.

http://www.flyrc.com/wing-load-calculator/ is what i used to generate my WL and WCL numbers
