    Dave
    When you say the 0320 flys slower, are you talking stall speed? Or attitude on approach (see it, feel it)? With Dougs math we added roughly 50 lbs. How much does that really effect stall...

    So did the plane fly slower or was it just a mushing stall vs clean break? I understand it does not reduce downforce (unless you trim nose down), that is why you would trim nose up to add downforce...

    I guess I have 2 questions. Why not just trim as needed instead of adding weight to the tail? Downforce from the stabilizer will do the same thing as lead in the tail. Second question is has...
