"I've been working on a wing design that's quasi-Skyfun size (1000mm span) but I keep running into MTOW/payload issues with the equipment I want to have on board.  I'm beginning to think I need to scale it up to achieve my goals.…"

"Great List of suggested upgrades!  Although I too like and continue to enjoy the X8, it is not perfect nor is it well suited for composites.  At Kashmir World Foundation we have created a much improved blended wing body aircraft that…"

"I strongly disagree with the issues you guys are raising about weight. If you build it right it can be very strong and still quite light. I fly fully moulded gliders and they are bullet proof compared to what is required for a X8  I Like the…"

"although I have just put a 5mm carbon web along the length of each wing just in front of the elevons, 600mm length. Has enabled me to have another 10m/s before flutter happens. Simple, easy & very light, but it is a bodge."

Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
Love flying wings, I think it is the perfect way to minimise the wet area not used for lift. Former merber of VAMUDES at University of Sherbrooke, I still love UAVs for their great potentials and accesibility
