    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.
