Aerodynamic Concept Selection

The aerodynamic detail selection is still on going but general selections have been made to change the wing. These are as follows:

-A less aggressive cambered airfoil- Better control under minimal loading conditions

-Sweeping of the leading edge- Adds stability in similar fashion of dihedral

-Increased Aspect Ratio- Increases the efficiency of the plane
