would you like to chare your drawings on this lovely plane. I would like to do a twin 90mm edf or blow it up to a 127mm twin edf.

But where do the mainwheels go when the gear retracts?

As far as I know, FSW usually also have their flaps at the wing roots.

WoW dude, what crawled up your sphincter? Anybody that has taken the time to design something that nice but doesn't actually plan on building it should just stick to visiting a computer aided design forum (a CAD forum)
Should you actually plan on building the design, get back to us after you put all that time into it and it crashes, you seem to have all the answerers I suppose. This must mean you're not interested in my almost 30 years of modeling experience huh?

Hanzie, if you have flaps on a SFW, root flaps are down elevator and tip flaps are up elevator, think about it. A SFW can land flat (minimal flair) with no stall tendencies.

'Root flaps are down elevator and tip flaps are up elevator.' How does that work exactly?
As far as I know at least some FSW aircraft that have their main wings at the front (So no canards) also have their flaps at the root of their wings. Not sure if that is the case with every FSW design, but now I'm interested to know how the position of the flaps at the wings have influence on the pitch characteristics of the plane.

Excellent cad work. It will definitely work. Check out mine SU - 47 (version2) without canards. This video was made while performing 3D maneuvers.

By the way, this plane was intended to be just an experience, but it turned out to be very agile and precise in 3D aerobatic maneuvers.

Please notice the steady vertical roll at 1’:58’’ and at 2’:17’’. I can assure you that this maneuver is very difficult and demanding for the plane to achieve it.

More information’s and plans about the plane here.

Build it and give it a try, I think you will enjoy it.

Follow your dreams and fly like there is no tomorrow!

Well I fly with full span elevons on my design so it doesn't matter.
