    Here are some concrete figures about a flying wing. Jim Marske's Pioneer 4.

    L/D 48:1: http://www.kollmanwings.com/Pioneer_4.html

    It is around 6% more efficient than a regular ( 15M ) similar sized glider.

    Space expert von Braun also had a M13 mover flying wing design; http://www.astronautix.com/v/vonbraunlandingboat.html

    Wing area is 2810 m2. Wing loading 7 x more than in Solar Impulse II at 71 kg/m2.

    Possibly the biggest aeroplane ever even considered ( in span ).

    Well Juke, good to hear from you... however.. I should be mad at you for spoofing your way back in! It breaks all the rules that I've set in place so that we can know who the heck we're dealing with on this board..

    With that said.. I'm going to change your username to a more accurate one, you'll need to read what it is so you can login again.. annnnd… .you're going to be on probation! All of your dreamer posts will be posted in the proper forum from the start or... I'll nuke your membership once again.

    Although, some of us find your fascination with thinking of new ways to do the same thing makes you a dreamer and dreamers are what has made this world what it is today, some of the forum members find it extremely annoying whey you wind up hijacking threads with dreamer questions...

    Anyway... just tread lightly, start signing your name to your posts, and I will welcome you back with open arms because I find you entertaining.... sometimes!!

    OK??
