Re: Plus and minus of main wing tips

Kevin Sheely

I agree with Jay & Sam. I would like to change to more of a different wing tip but not worth the time. I had those designed in the early 90’s.

I think that I am going for wheel pants next.

I agree with you Sam!  Thanks for everyone’s input.
I’ll work on the other ideas gradually

Be sure to consider how much down time you will have before changing anything.  Then multiply that number by ten or maybe 100.

I would say that overall, it is not worth the effort of changing what you have. There is a lot of variation in speeds of Q200’s and I think wing tip shape is down at the bottom of the list in terms of influencing drag/speed. My 2 cents.

Subject: [Q-List] Plus and minus of main wing tips


im soon to be a new owner of a standard configuration Q200. I’m wondering what everyone thinks about aerodynamic wing tips for speed and performance?   Or if you think it’s to much work than reward as a afterthought? I’ve seen a couple of Q pictures that have them( Kevin Sheely)  and maybe those folks can chime in also.
thanks in advance
