Default New wings



Hi fellow experts

I have a Byron F16 fuse and stabs, since I have some succesfull seasons with a Byron F16 in standard setup, i want to try something different.

This time i want to redisign the wings with the same airfoil in a planform similar to the drawing. My question is what i should to expect with regards to speed, maneuvrability, dutch roll, tip stall, take off run and easy of landing?

Also i want to take some advantage from the new cg in order to install a motor in the tail, i think a p60

Could only use tailerons? some washout could be useful?

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Javier

ps scale apparience is not an issue

Kool. No wash out needed.
Glad you understand "new c/g". Will need to relocate gear also. 10 percent behind c/g
more wing area nice, for sport plane ..maybe ,56 inche span .
Plane flys better, with "non flying stab"

RAPPTOR thank you for the head up on relocating the gear. I think retracts in the wings for a better stance and stability on the take off run

As shown this one might get away with tailerons. But then again most builders of anything other than delta wings that have tried tailerons have generally come back with reports that the roll response is poor and end up fitting proper wing tip ailerons after all.
