Re: GU Canards flying

Richard Thomson

Thanks Jon, and everyone who has contributed to this thread. I have
an LS1 on my early Tri Q 200, which I did wonder if it was at one
stage, until PB pointed out it had strainers and cambered elevators,
which was a relief as we get lots of rain and bugs in UK. I have just
taken the elevators off for repairs to the strainers, but I find that
the Elevator rods are in poor condition and need to be changed for
new ones. Has anybody got a pair for sale please, or the drawing to
make some new ?

Hi Richard,

I have a GU and am content with it. I had a T-Tail AND reflexor -
I removed
the T-Tail as I felt they were redundant.

If I were about to start construction, I would build an LS1. The
VG's work
on the GU but they aren't pretty - would rather have an LS1 so I
didn't need
to worry about them (plus cleaning around them is a nuisance).

Subject: [Q-LIST] GU Canards flying

Hi Guys,

I'm sure that someone has probably asked this before but how many GU
canards are still flying as against how many have converted to LS1.
Does anyone have any info ? And are there any GU guys who would not
change to LS1 and why ? Are those GU guys using LeGare Tail or
Reflex ?
