Swept Forward Design for burning holes (sport) Comments?

Hi guys,
I've been at this for some time as a new version of a concept done in balsa.
Four actual flying airframes were in testing for the entire flight envelope from a 22" wing to a 42" fully symetrical rounded leading edge. So now I'd like to mold this design based on what I've learned the past few years fooling with this thing. I used a glider pod look and modded the shape to acomodate a 2x1.25x6(in) battery, it uses a EH 1.0/9.0 airfoil, 30 mm spinner. The balsa one flying has a neu 1112-2d/6x4/ice100/4k45c and does pretty good over 140 but trying to make one more slippery with better asthetics. 44"wing320sq.in.
Thanks
Tom
