What is your thinking on COG here? I would guess that you might need more weight forward.

Hi Mike,

That positioning seen here is approximate, but not too far away from my calculated positions that give me the CoG based on empirical flying wing data from several sources and also simulated in X-plane

BTW, I've abandoned this flying wing concept and am up to HDwing 4 at the moment, which is a forward swept flying wing concept, although no longer strictly a flying wing.  I'll be posting details later, but I've seen a jump in best L/D of nearly 2 ratios, based on my X-plane simulations.
