  On the Q200 with the continental does anyone use ballast in the tail.
If so, how much?

What are most people getting for tail weight?

Hi Chris,
Most Q200’s I know of don’t require extra weight in the tail. I have 15 lbs. pressure on the tail wheel in its normal stance.

Hi Chris,

Different people have tailwheels in different places (mine is on the nose),
plus I think you have unconventionally located main gear, right? I would
suggest you just try to get the empty CG between FS39 and FS40, and things
should work out pretty well regardless of the gear placement. If you get
this right you will probably not need to add ballast, but your mileage may
vary.

Cheers,
Jay

Sounds great Kevin. Missed seeing you at your fling. Maybe we can reserve the homebuilder patio this year and have a social hour. I will look into that.

    Hi Tim,

    It is 3/16 on mine, but aware some have gone to 1/4. I have been chewing over this as it seems a good idea.
