    Thanks guys . this looks like a great community and i look forward to getting to know everyone . I think the key to my success will be communities just like this one . support me on kickstarter if you can but helping me get the word out to more people is a huge help also .

    @ akoni ,
    yes , I think it can be easily modded to break down . future versions will no doubt feature this .
    speaking of future versions

    You could save a lot of computing time using appropriate reynolds numbers not just as many as possible...
    I can't read a single thing from your rainbow colour chart. What did you optimize the plane for? Glide ratio, lowest sink ing rate?
    But I like the cnc wood pieces, looks awesome. Xflr5 is a nice tool, I like it too, but it has it's short coming s since drela didn't update the xfoil code anymore for years...

    It looks awesome and very promising. The only problem I see now, is on how long before some unscrupulous merchant from the far east steals your design and start selling it around the world. Is it possible to patent a design like yours?
