It doesn't say it on the sketch, but after drawing the plan I named this one "Spartan Wing." You see the name Spartan several times
here, a reference to my college sports teams at San Jose State. A nice benefit to this was that I could pick up a variety of Spartan
decals at the campus bookstore! I did build this one, and it flew really fast and smooth. But what a beast on the ground! At first, all
it would do is nose over. After moving the gear forward, it would bounce like crazy unless landed perfectly. A plank-style flying
wing doesn't combine well with taildragger landing gear. It did teach me; however, that a symmetrical airfoil flying wing is neutrally
stable and perfectly controllable by novice pilots like me. That lesson translated much later to the Delta Vortex.
