# Free excel tool I just whipped up

Simple tool you can use to Calculate Airfoil Dimensions for a Park Flyer. The calculations are Based off of Gene Bonds' PDF. I added some green and red backround colors to indicate if a dimension seems out of the reccomended range.

So as you will with the tool.

Wing Chord, Wing Span, Vertical Stabilizer Area, and Horizontal Stabilier Area are used to create the data.

Enjoy!!

Monday passed.
 Oct 16, 2006, 01:59 PM Registered User Is there something fishy about those design parameters or am I missing something. I opened the pdf file and noticed the rudder and elevator are suggested to be 100% of the size of the horizontal stab and the fin. Wouldn't 100% be the whole fin and stab? Or am I misunderstanding the drawing? Maybe someone else may need this clarified. Anyhow this could be a neat tool if it evolves.
