Default Wing designer program I made

Hey everyone! I'm new here but I've been working on a cool project lately (at least I think it's cool). I love R/C planes and programming... so I combined them. I've been working on a program to help me design wings for R/C planes and was excited to show it off, even though it's far from finished.

Would love to hear what you all think about it! Will share more about it in the future and of course, some planes I make with it.

Here's the link to a quick video I made to show it off:

Looks very cool.
Can you define a different rib airfoil at the tip compared to the root?
I have seen some planes use a different airfoil at the tip to reduce tip stall.
Compufoil will allow this and then generates blended airfoils from root to tip.

I like the way your program seems easy to use.

I keep telling myself I want to design a real nice glider some day, but yet never finding the time to get past the idea point.

Good luck with your project.

It doesn't yet but will soon. It'll be the next feature I work on! Really easy to implement. I'll be making it so you can make each primary airfoil different (the ones that are red).

And thanks, easy to use is what I'm going for!

Sounds like a great project!
Unfortunately, my browser doesn't show the link or the video... can you maybe put in a URL in inactive text that I could access in a different browser?

Thanks for your work there and best wishes as you continue!
