Re: Airflow over the canard

I think it means that you have some air leakage around the hinge. The
higher-pressure air along the lower surface finds its way through the hinge
slot and makes a little jet or invisible geyser of air that sets up two
little counter-rotating vortices in its wake. No big deal unless you're Jon

I'd have to look to be positive but am pretty sure that is where my
tuft is located. What does this mean/imply???

Those spinning yarns at midspan are probably plus or minus about 20
in line aft from the mid-span elevator hinge, no?
