Thank for your comments, I have not made it, but looks like Ryan will be the Chuck Yeager for this. Let me know how it goes.

I'm definately making this. Bonus points for using a real airfoil (ClarkY). So many of these attempts pay no heed to aerodynamics.

Very cool! Have you done any test to see if it would fly?
