Any info on AR?

Trailing edge looks flatter than modern shapes, Chunky entry. To me looks like a higher aspect sonic 1 :-/

Does seem to have more TE turn initiation than wingtip so modern Like R1V2 and D2. Should be good to hold tons of power in the kite.

How are they oblivious to the Pansh Ace name?
