Draft rules are making their rounds...I'll let others share the details since I have enough of a target on my back already. In the meantime I'm going to get the ball rolling a different way by showing some cool tech from the 2019 contest cycle. Eric Lim and his teammate Kaylyn scored 6th place for their school's first trip ever to the Nationals.

For those wondering, I've already prototyped out two designs, one being a duplex design that builds as either a conventional model or a canard with no changes in dihedral, etc, just where you locate the parts. Both configurations fly well. The Super Protege Canard is going to be another matter. Excellent performance, evil to trim.

Josh,

Interested in seeing your canard concept. I designed one back in 2013 (I think) which was the last time SO had the canard bonus. Flew pretty well, but not good enough to make it competitive with conventional flappers.

Here's the relevant details on the Protege page (excuse the older demo/flying material...just haven't gotten the new stuff uploaded because we have an internet connection that makes dial up look fast).

Here, however, is some flight footage of some more of my 2020 SO designs: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L4Faqs-b_UQ
