Enough experimental data is itself a form of scientific research, Dick. Thousands of modelers have built your wings and are using them very successfully. They don't all report their findings, and even fewer have measurements to back up their conclusions, but the overall effectiveness of your wings is undeniable.

As has been pointed out many times before: you didn't start out to impact the small airframe market with your science, but its effect on what we build has generational consequence. Everybody who has slapped a smaller sheet of foam on top of a bigger sheet and called it a KFm2 owes you a debt of gratitude.

Thank you. I owe a great deal of gratitude to all the RCers out there who were willing to try out the KF concept. Their creativity, experimentation and innovation has opened up the idea of trapping a vortex to a much larger world. It is an amazing story.
