- Wing Area is 0.79 sqft
- A 2 inch dihedral (one side) is 4 degrees/side (8 deg total), which is what Garrett did on the prototype, same as the real plane.
- Aileron ratio (1") is 18%, great
- MAC length is 4.42", located 5.84" from centerline
- If you put the CG at 1.65" from Wing LE (25% of MAC) you'll get a 22% static margin (pretty high for these kind of planes I'd think, means nose heavy). Better value is probably 1.8 to 1.9" from wing LE (at the center). Flying tests from expert PSS flyers will tell.
- Tail design is spot on at 0.44 of H tail volume coeff.

Great work from the BunkerWerks Aircraft Factory

I'll definitely be following along - I want to build one as an electric conversion - I live in Maryland, and there is a dearth of good hills to slope off of.
Thanks! - Looking forward to it!

Stopped by Garret's to shoot the shite and layup one of these little guys. We're still experimenting with different layups, so we'll see how this turns out. Thanks LARS and Garrett for making this happen. Cool little plane!

Stopped by Garrett's today to pick up my fuse, currently the two halves weigh a whopping 3.7oz. Couple very minor bubbles, but overall I'm very impressed with how it turned out. ill try and get some cores cut and the fuse seamed before build night.
