Default RE: my first EDF jet

Thanks Doug. I had the same idea, increasing the wing area to 180 sq. in. because I noticed most ARF 400 size EDF Jets have around the same wing area. Anyway, I'm just planning on the materials and power system for the F-16 I'll probably start making it in 3 more weeks. I will post my progress here.
I was wondering how to exactly calculate the wing area. The 140 sq. in. was measured from 2 trapeziums on the sides and one rectangle in the middle, or should I measure it as a triangle at the top and a rectangle at the bottom ?

I used the first picture to calculate the wing area, is taht right ?
Thank you.
