    That is a good point. And companies offering ARFs would not have to design anything new. Just pack it on different stages:

    Lift = (1/2) d v2 s CL

    L = Lift, which must equal the airplane's weight in pounds
    d = density of the air. This will change due to altitude. These values can be found in a I.C.A.O....
