E Mower

That looks great the only thing I would suggest is that the ailerons need
To be 2 inches wide and the airfoil has to be the NACA foil that I sent you
Take a look at the top handle it is X and the motor should have
3 degrease down and 2 right
the way you launch it is by making a 2 inch by 1 inch block on the bottom
