BigMouse Posted February 28, 2005 Share Posted February 28, 2005 Hey there, new to the forum. I've just got a general question about canard weight and balance. Are there any current designs where the fuel is not located in line with the center of lift? If so, how is fuel consumtion during flight and its effect on CG dealt with? Is canard trim ever used to shift the CL? Or is the fuel located at or near the CL on all canards to deal with that issue? Just trying to satisfy my curiosity. I can't find any info on it in any of my textbooks, and the POH's for current kits are not available online. Thanks. Quote Airframe/Powerplant mechanic, Engineer wannabe.
