SQ2000 with RG mains.

Recommended Posts

During my SQ2000 flight training and now my own test flights I am finding that there is a significant difference when the RG is down. The lowered RG with its "rough" profile is really an effective speed brake, and I think the empty wheel wells also add to drag - like two little parachutes especially at high angle of attack. With RG down I seldom go beyond 140kts.
