rhofacker Posted May 19, 2004 Share Posted May 19, 2004 Davincy Technologoes, the makers of AirplanePDQ software, have a really neat program call Airfoil Optimizer. You input the baseline configuration of your airplane performance and airfoil and it allows you to compare peformance changes with other airfoils from an extensive library. I plugged in the Cozy MkIV as a baseline and found that while there are airfoils in the database that would improve cruise speed they hurt take off performance. Looks like Mr. Rutan made a very good choice/tradeoff. Imagine that. Still, it's fun to look... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
