I have flown my aircraft at full forward CG, at max gross and at minimum weight. Forward CG takes more runway for liftoff and more speed on landing, but it's not really a big deal. The elevators were "too small", whatever that means, and who are "Some"?

who, me kidding???

 

 

It means that the elevators are longer from the canard to the trailing edge, the trailing edge is extended 1/4 inch. I wish i could invite you over to see it in person, but sorry, rules are rules, you would have to work the day, he he he

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