this is the definitive layout. I am unable to find the coordinates of the du 90091 airfoil.. I will opt for the MH24 (different from the one in thepicture)

If you're going to cut cores and sheet them, I don't recommend the MH24. That airfoil needs high accuracy like you get from machined molds. An SD6060 is much more forgiving and very close in performance. It also has much more friendly handling at slower speeds because of the more gradual taper to the trailing edge. If you do a vacuum bagged SD6060 with a feather edge core and glass and carbon mat or light cloth cloth coming together in the trailing edge, you can get a really nice TE, even with a balsa sheeted wing.

I forgot to ask if the sd6060 airfoil has to be used both for the root and the tip.. l

Personally, I would recommend the same airfoil from root to tip.

I was asked to identify the width of the Hover, Stiletto canopy. I have tried sending both a PM and email with the info and it doesn't seem to go through. Therefore, I am posting it here.

The width is shown on the calipers. It is about .800" just before the radius into the top and is measured at the widest point in top view. It is also tapered from the base to the top.

Hope this helps.

Ok.. maybe i am annoying someone.. but the FINAL correct drawing for the fuselage is this:

I changed a bit the lowest part of the nose from the original, because i wanted to make the plane similar to the Sattler's Panther

the WC wing it should be 140 cm of wingspan, root 27 cm, tip 16 cm and it is placed a bit on top tomfull enclose the pipe
