The airfoil is a cleaned up version of the epp foil.

Are you looking for cnc coordinates? If so for now it is proprietary.

2. The airfoil section has been further tuned by Joe Wurts to be appropriate for a fully molded aircraft.
If so then they are NOT proprietary because Joe uses xfoil, written by Matt Drela, and publication of the airfoil coordinates are mandated by the copyright holder, Mark Drela.

Isn't a bat ray basically a flying wing? I wonder how it's airfoil would work for DS. Bat Rays generate the most "lift" of any small fish I have caught.

If I write a book on paper printed by X-Company, my work is MINE not X-Company's. The program (whether it be GPL licensed or not) is merely a construct for doing the work that has been done.

That would be like Miller welders owning the copyright to everything ever welded with one of their tig welders. Not gonna happen.

However, if you marry the xfoil software, it will own everything you make!

And if you divorce it, it'll own half of everything you make from there on out.

The UK? That's not European, it's a freakin' island.
