XFLR5 is a design tool intended for the design and analysis of reduced scaled model airplanes.
It includes the XFoil program for the analysis of airfoils.
It includes a non-linear Lifting Line method (LLT), two Vortex Lattice Methods (VLM),
and a 3D panel flat panel,first-order method for the analysis of wings and planes.
XFLR5 v5 is a re-write of XFLR5 v4 using Qt4 libraries instead of Microsoft's MFC.
XFLR5 v6 introduces stability and control analysis

2016-11-05 - techwinder@gmail.com
- Update to version 6.30
* separated the GUI from the analysis engines
* added an option to hide flap moments in the operating view
* added a style property for foil points
* corrected and improved the calculation and display of analysis with sideslip; impact on results
* code cleaning
* bug corrections and minor enhancements
2016-05-29 - techwinder@gmail.com
- Update to version 6.14
* modified the calculation of stability derivatives to take into account viscous drag and extra drag
* added mass and CoG position to the list of variables for stability polar graphs
* corrected issues in the construction of wings with inverse dihedral
* corrected an error in the calculation of a mode's damped natural frequency
* made some adjustments to batch analysis of foils to speed up execution
* added some animations to the 3d view transitions
* removed the limitations inconsistent with the GPL in the credits window
* fixed a few minor bugs
2016-04-16 - techwinder@gmail.com
- Update to version 6.13
* upgraded to OpenGL 3.0+ from the deprecated OpenGL 1.0
* improved the lighting options in 3D view
* added an option to paint textures on the plane's surfaces
* added an option to export 3D object geometries to binary stl format
* added an option to autosave the project at regular time intervals
* added XCp.Cl as a variable to the plane's polar graphs, and d(XCp.cl)/dCl = XNP to the plane's legend
* changed the panel force display to q.Cp instead of q.S.panel_area; this is more significant since the arrow lengths are now mesh independent.
* added the extra drag in the calculation of the plane's total drag coefficient
* fixed the crash bug when running a multithreaded batch foil analysis
* fixed the issue of slow display in XInverse design
* fixed some stability issues in XInverse design
* interface improvements in XInverse design
* added a selection option for inertia units
* changed the display in the foil OpPoint view so that the foil can be overlayed on the graph
* code cleaning
2016-01-09 - techwinder@gmail.com
- Update to version 6.12
* introduced an option to add extra drag to polar objects, to account for surfaces not included in the plane object
* restored the plot and export options of the boundary layer graphs after a converged xfoil analysis
* modified in depth the constuction of the wing geometry, to better account for flap with large deflections; has an impact on results;
* corrected bugs in the import/export operation of body objects to xml files
* enabled the LE points of the spline foil to be dragged in Direct Design
* corrected a minor error in the construction of the foil's mid camber line; potential small impact on VLM results
* corrected other minor things
2015-08-08 - techwinder@gmail.com
- Update to version 6.11
* added an option to customize the target lift distribution curve in the wing's operating point view
* added inertia data as parameters in stability analysis
* added more display options for curve points
* replaced the deprecated QGLWidget by the new QOpenGLWidget recommended in Qt5.4
* added a new editor for the plane object
* added a new editor for the body object
* reviewed in depth the 2D rendering system to separate viewing operations from the analysis part
* replaced the rendertext methods in OpenGL by custom implementations to improve the rendering quality
* improved the issue of the plane-fin intersection when the body is translated
* enabled launching xflr5 from a project file, and opening the model
* added an import/export option of a plane definition to an xml file
* added an import/export option for body objects to an xml file
* deeeeep code cleaning
* other minor corrections and improvements
