Re: Need a Sparrow Strainer alternative

Wait. . . I just looked up "gurney flap" in wikepedia. . .wouldn't a "gurney flap" push the trailing edge of the elevator UP and the nose DOWN? That seems to be the opposite of what the sparrow strainer is trying to accomplish. Just FYI.
The TE of the LS1 elevator is curved down. . . the sparrow strainer causes a DOWN force on the TE to reduce AFT stick forces. Perhaps you would need to install "Gurney Spoilers" but that might cause even more problems. :-)
Also not sure how you "increase lift or downforce." What does that even mean?
