Description Another variation of mashing up the Leeon Davis DA-11 and the Scott Winton Facet Opal. Wing planform is identical to DA-11 though airfoil is reflexed. The short wheelbase taildragger landing gear may be marginal - the inverted tail fin tip chord hides a tailwheel. Vertical fin and rudder may also be marginal though scale gliders tolerate the very small surfaces.
