Need a good CG and MAC Calculator for multitapered wing
I had a great multi-tapered wing CG and MAC calculator which accommodated a 5 panel tapered wing.
However it was on an older computer and I have lost the link to it.
I have searched the internet but the best I can get is for a 3 panel wing. It does the job reasonably well but my old program worked much better.
Does anyone have a link to that wonderful calculator program?

I guess you could use XFLR5 to do this. It might be cumbersome because it needs airfoil coordinates and must generate polars for each panel foil specfied in your design. It is fussy about older coordinate tables with fewer than 100 chord stations but it has a utility that fixes that. Gives you most any graph you might want about your wing's predicted performance.
BTW, I have been using rollfuz to make a few tailbooms for a big electric glider. I was able to do a wet seam on one but there are then problems with air getting in the open edge reqired for the seam. The air problem was only cosmetic so the boom was quite usable. Thanks for sharing.
