    Whee, does your heavy wing issue change at all when you put the flaps down?

      Will you eventually install wing tips? This could be a great test case for stall speeds w/o tips, then stall speeds with tips. Maybe even Hoerner tips.

        I haven’t noticed a change but I’m usually busy doing other things during the phase of flight when I deploy the flaps. I haven’t tried it specially to see if there is a difference.

        I will be installing Hoerner tips sorta soon. Might be a winter project but hopefully sooner.

        Spill plate tips like I have are supposed to be good for STOL flying but are very draggy. I’m reasonably confident the Hoerners will be a welcome improvement.

          Are you making your own Hoerners? Glass or Carbon?

        There's no such thing as a "lame" video of a Bearhawk flying. Keep 'em coming! You're keeping us inspired!

            This airplane is so enjoyable to fly! You all need to get one of your own. The performance is pretty remarkable. When a ham fisted pilot like myself can perform stop and goes using less than 1000’ of runway you know the airplane is a good one.

              Completed CG and load testing this morning. I’m very happy I went with the Pat Fagan trim system.



              It was kinda hot in the cabin while taxiing so I opened the door which made it convenient to snap at pic of the BH LSA that came into town.
