performance differences between Tri-Q and taildragger


Does any know (or care to speculate) about the performance difference
between Q-200's with tricycle gear vs. taildragger?

Aside from handling/visibility benefits, I'm anticipating some cost
(drag and weight), but then I thought perhaps there might be some
compensating design benefit (is there a flatter wing on the Tri-Q?).
I'm also wondering whether it affects the W&B significantly; I assume
folks have done the O-200, but also saw a listing for a Tri-Q with a
70hp engine.

Thanks in advance!
