    Yep. Takes some ham handed talent to damage the gear fittings with 35s and Acmes. It might have been easier on things if the rear gear leg folded but then I wouldn't have flown it out.

    What about non-retractable double slats for light simple Cub types? Seems like someone will try it, at least for competition. I'm excited to hear what kind of performance Mike finds in testing.

    The prototype FX-3 had a rectangular rear window with some painted over to leave a D shape if my memory serves. People don't seem to mind the looks.

    When you say cuff I'm picturing a downward curve at the trailing edge. Sorta gurney flapish?
