Being able to adjust airfoil profile within flight
-By means of fluid pressure being pumped into hexagonial chambers inside a flexible skin covering a standard wing structure each individual cell has its own valve and pressure sensor fluid being used is jet fuel as to keep total component weight down.

-By creating different pressures in each chamber the shape of the airfoil can be completely changed in flight to most ideal conditions maybe to extend as to reduce the number of flap constructions further reducing weight and building cost.
