well, I am planning the following speed improvements


Befor I fly

Engine turboed etc.


Two blade prop (I would like a one blade but am not a true experimentalist)


Max prop extension (more clean air to prop)


After I fly

Attach video camera to outside of plane in various spots, attach strings, determine flow problem areas and try to fare or otherwise improve.


Change the profile of the landing gear to a naca airfoil that doesn't produce lift in eithor direction.


Try to "trip" bad areas into micro seperation/turbulence (sorry, I don't know the technical term) rather than allow it to happen.


The problem with most improvements is that they don't tend to work as well as computed or at all. So my solutions will be of the quick and dirty kind for testing purposes.


maker wood dust and shavings - foam and fiberglass dust and one day a cozy will pop out, enjoying the build
