I love this! Short span for low drag and maximum speed! :thumbsup:
It reminds me the Moskalyev SAM-9 Strela http://www.unicraft.biz/on/strela/strela.htm is this the inspiration of it? :unsure: ;D

Thanks gentlemen!

And Tophe; yes it was part of the inspiration, other source is the Sack AS.6 and the Larson speedbird. Or in short, less (wing) is more..

Nope, just the name is similar to the baddies boat's name Disco Volante https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_James_Bond_vehicles#Marine_vehicles

With some canards this could also turn into a Payen "Flèche Volante"?
