Default "Da-Wing"

I looked through all the threads debating between deltas and Q-500 type planes and it seems like the worst thing about deltas is the "wetted" surface, which I don't really know what that is but I think it has something to do with it having a longer chord and the air touching it longer?
I was just wondering if anyone ever built one like this (Da-Wing) " http://mypage.yhti.net/~dmcdnld/dawing.htm " but with a slimmer airfoil and with a performance engine to see how it does?

Just wondering,
Joel

I have never seen those with a real hot engine. But from the ones I seen with a sport engine they hauled.

I bet it would be a fun plane and would burn holes in sky with a real engine. Now you kind of gave me an idea now...hmmm

Yep! I used to have a DaWing with a Rossi 40 on it. It made the 40FP DaWing look pretty slow.
