WileEZ Posted July 16, 2008 Share Posted July 16, 2008 I just read in another thread that the canards are not suitable for flying in IMC. I'm curious, if I was to somehow be able to heat the canards and main wings to some point above freezing, oh say to 60 degrees F (15.5 degrees c), would that be enough to let me fly in freezing IMC? What would be the minimum temperature needed to prevent/get rid of ice buildup? I have an idea on how to do this economically and safely, although it would have to be done during the build process. Well at least the mod is limited to the canards and main wings. And could possibly be retrofitted into the strakes in a completed canard. I need to explore/think this through a bit before I'm ready to share this idea with y'all. But first, is heating the wings enough? Quote WileEZ "All of my ideas are suspect until proven otherwise!"
