"a small winglike projection attached to an aircraft forward of the main wing to provide extra stability or control, sometimes replacing the tail"
A control canard is nothing more then two small wings near the nose of the plane. So technically last year anyone that had a wide horizontal nose piece had a canard on the front.
So is the canard configuration going to be restricted to just wright brother style aircraft or of the broader definition of what a canard is?
The word on the street is that you get a 30% bonus at states and nats for having one.Because most of us don't have rules yet... what's this chatter about a canard? Required in the build or bonus stuff?
Personally, I like rules like that, because they add a new engineering challenge to an event that might otherwise be very similar to last year.Ugh, I'm not a big fan of the 3.0 g minimum weight requirement. Too heavy
Anyone in concord?
