Very nice!

The small drag rudders seem to be very effective. I'm surprised at the ease of landing considering how much weight is high overhead. Not a bad glide either considering the very low effective aspect ratio.

When will we see this monoplane with tip dihedral? Last seen at Escape Country '73 or '74.
