    True, but there's not much else available that's been peer reviewed and published that I've found. Those studies typically take money. The question and some money has supported airfoil and aircraft...

    Yes Pete I agree with the LvsD link so not questioning. Abbott and Doenhoff's Theory of Wing Sections Ch. 8, Fig. 134 confirms that at some Reynolds Number. But Posts #8 and #12 bring to question...

    Also consider the lift produced via airspeed or effective Reynolds Number over and under the flapped portion of the wing. Prop blast on takeoff increases that. Not so much on landing unless power is...

    It appears some further testing is required re what's best during T/O and landing: flap gap open or sealed. I'd also contact Charly Center at Crosswind's STOL for his take on sealed vs not.

    If there was a safe way to test it on one wing only you'd soon discover any benefit or downside. The added enhancement above of seals in ground effect is interesting.

    Ropes to the ice screws need to be angled towards the wind. That creates an initial shear force on them vs vertical load on their threads. And gusts can create pressure on the screws which melts...
