Like I said, I think I'll have to move the pilot back about 1ft. Problem is, I want to retain the lifting body roof line and a semi reclined seating position. If I go back much further than that, I loose one or the other. I don't think a fully reclined position will enhance long distance flying, unless you doze off. :zzz: = Yes, the fuse' sides could be slanted but that would take away valuable lifting surface off the wings and nothing gained except looks. Never heard of Yoda. Re the winglets, why do they put them on just about every new plane conceived these days? Look it up. I don't have span constraints, in fact, I want to make it narrower but need to do some sums first. Thanks for your comments guys.
