There are a lot of other similar programs out there, both free, and not free.

So, could the wattflyer readers post the program(s) they use, and its corresponding web site? Perhaps, also include a list of the good things and bad things about the program you use. This would be very useful for all of us.
Kyleservice tech uses www.motocalc.com.

Good things:
It provides an overall suggestion on how well the model will fly based on wingspan, wing area, weight, and power system selected.

Bad things:
It's only as accurate as the motor specs provided by the mfg. Some of the motocalc motor specs listed are off by quite a bit.
