Have been working on a new wing to a glider, aero and strength wise, goal is good flying qualitys with good enough performance.

The XFLR5 work good with the airfoils but can't get it to work with the wing/plane.

For now, the winglets is there just for the looks, but wing is calculated struktural as 16 meter, projected span is 15.

I guess if you want to fly in competition for "standard" sailplanes, that's a good reason for the winglets.
