Re: Winglets

Winglets impose structural loads on a wing just like extending the wingspan
would. I think people are rightly cautious about such major modifications. I
wouldn't want to put anything substantial out there without doing a little
load-checking of the structure, first.

How come I've never seen winglets on a Q? I've seen them on Varieze .
Would they be of any benefit to a Q. Are they strickly for STOL?
