    One of the Hales Landing crew drew one up. We didn't write it up for the Beartracks because Bob wasn't a fan of that level of modification and complexity. I don't recall him having safety objections, just elegance objections, if you will.

      You’d need to use Charlie Center’s Crosswind STOL designed tail support set up to retain the support struts feature that are fixed on the Bearhawk.

          Found this pic on one of their website pages: http://crosswindsstol.com/wp/s-t-o-l/

          Guessing there is triangulation of forward strut that moves up and down with the front edge of the horizontal stabilizer. Nice call out Mark.

            Still seems like a good idea to me so far. I’ll continue to research. Thanks for the enlightenment.
