If you take one, you will need to take another one for me, then you will probably have to take two more for Greg and Matin.........

Just kidding!

All of the designers at Aero Vodochody together don't have half the talent in your pinky.

Now if you could just stop putting rouge on your daughter's cheeks......

A diagram to show the dimensions for marking out the wing slot-

Block the fuse up on a flat bench so the bottom edge of the tail opening is 60mm off the bench.

Mark the wing slot at 30mm parallel to the bench.

Wing LE is 360mm from the nose.

That airfoil look very much like one of your modded ones! Or is it a stock Selig/Donovan one or something similar?
What camber does it have?

It looks like it in the profile posted above. Might be just optical illusion though.

The polars of the original look really good. Fast, good turning while retaining pretty acceptable inverted performance?

I like it.

Jim.

edit: I'm still learning to interpret airfoil polars! I want to book you in ahead for a short tutorial on the subject when next we meet at one of the festivals please!

Yes I bumped the camber up a little.

Flies good and is easy to build. It's basically just a thin RG-14 with a more triangular TE (RG-14 has some undercamber).
