    Indeed! Ring Ken and have a yarn about your ideas. Ken was chief engineer for the RV-8 onwards to the RV-12, I think. He's also done his own KK-1 and is the engineering brains behind the Vashon Ranger. He seriously knows how to design stuff and is a really top bloke to boot. I'm sure he'll...

    @berridos, I use Solidworks for doing geometry. You could use anything that can generate an STL file but it's nice to use a parametric modeler because you can iterate geometry relatively quickly. It's a steep learning curve to tackle though! OF with inviscid flow sim will tell you lots - you...
