Re: Vortex Generators (VGs) on the GU Canard

  Correct if I am wrong on this but wasn't the move from GU to the LS early in the Q history? I remember reading in the Q newsletters about this change. 
 If it is the case then only a few Q2 would requirement for VGs' . In any case..thank you for the photos and info! I will be fabricating a similar
 locator and include it in my tooling.  Since my shells are not yet joined I have the support tools for those and a box of hotwire cut templates.

Thanks for that list.  I created a folder in the Q-List files section and placed the VG drawings and articles there.

FYI - there is a lot of useful information in the Q-List files section.  I encourage you all to browse through it.

Have a good day.

I was surprised no one posted the actual QAC instructions for VG placement in Brent Sherstan's Introduction thread and figured the discussion warranted its own post. Hope it helps.
