Re: Larger fuel tank under seat + higher cabin headroom.

I was thinking one goy on the group had a T Tail and took the tail off. Darrell

Thanks for responding... I, if I am being told accurate information
is that the performance envelope of the Q are opened up with a T-
Tail allowing slower approach speeds if the a stabilizer with an
elevator is added to the top of the tail which is five to six feet
long becoming a tri-foil aircraft... if you wan't to call it that.

I wanted to look into deleting the elevators off the canard, if this
can be done. I don't care if the airplane becomes something else if
the performance is improved by as much as 10%.

Due to the public floggings of opinion which come about from someone
even suggesting a radical change to these airplanes I want to keep
discussion off list, if you would be willing to do so. I have been
referred to you for some other questions I had too.

I have a DF, but the way I see it, except for the length of the
wings they are the same airplane, essentially and this mod, if it
works as well as claimed by someone who did a study on the T-Tail,
would apply to either aircraft. This group is much more active than
the DFly group so I passed the question here about this possibility
plus I wanted to look into the idea of flapperons, but not my main
thrust of interest, mainly the T Tail and perhaps a raised canopy so
I don't hit my head on the top.

That's the same thing an engineer told me on another project
which suceeded.

I'm pretty dedicated
towards doing something different from a regular Q or DF with
project even if it takes me ten years to finish it. I want to
T-Tail on it as the sole elevator and perhaps look into
for both wings.
