    Well, sorta, I think. Let's assume that the incidence at the fuselage fittings differs between the two sides. Then, if the wing tips are at the same angle in reference to something, say the...

    The stick for the EAB -12 I'm working on will be 4130. Not a place to scrimp, in my opinion. Not saying CharlieN is scrimping - looks like he's given it a lot of thought. But, even very...

    Perry, if you had to choose between the Cato and the Borer, which would it be? I know you've said the performance is essentially the same, but the Cato is lighter, so guessing that one?

    My -12 today, in steady-state level flight. The sun is low, so it's easy to see the contours on the top of the wing when zoomed in. The fabric is very slightly convex. Maybe 1/4" Maybe? ...
