Thanks, Nigel.

I found there are a couple sailplanes with forward swept wings but they were thus designed to get the main spar out of the cabin area. Forward sweep may work best in high speed designs and just be a novelty with ours.

The buddy also tried a flying wing design with forward sweep. To the best of my knowledge it would snap roll at the slightest hint of a stall and the longest flight I saw must have been under 10 seconds.
