I have a question to Mr Carafino : What is the definitive configuration of the stabilizer ?
On some pictures, the winglets are pointing down and on others they are pointing up.
That is a great question....... winglets as you call them are known as wing tips. Wing tips reduce slippage. also known as yawing. They help you to track in a straight line. Up or down, the purpose is to track.
does that imply that the foil sections are symmetric?
...and that the interface with the fuselage is a good fit in both directions?
or just you way of providing additional trim adjustments?
so much for Toby's new posting protocol...sorry
