    If I find it, you will be! I may have to start it again, ironically, there seems to be out on it now than when I made that model. The cross section of the blade was not available. Those slots running on the forward and trailing edge of each blade ump out extremely high presssure gas which forms a extends the wing. It's called the "Coanda effect. If you stick your finger under a clear stream or water running out of a faucet, and just touch the edge of the water, it will wrap around your finger, that's the "Coanada" effect. In the case of this craft, it would have effectively made the wing able to be tuned in flight. :)
