  1. Nutz!! I agree, give it a rest and look at it after the shock has worn off.
    Merry Christmas Larry.

    Thank you guys, there is no shock, I am getting used to crashing this thing. I am having serious second thoughts about the project and I realized from the start that it might not work out so I am not really upset by the crash.
    I may have over looked one huge rule of the canard world, all the front flying surfaces are fixed with a hinged elevator. This allows the canard to have a fixed angle of incidence compared to the wing. With this "fixed" configuration the canard will stall before the wing allowing the nose to drop and make a recovery. What I have done with the full flying canard is to throw all this out the window, when down elevator is applied I am in effect making the canard have LESS incidence than the wing which in turn allowed the wing to stall while I was applying down elevator to try and get the nose down. I think the full flying canard may be a dead end for a safe flying model because of this, allowing the wing to go into a deep stall condition with the canard still in effect flying because down elevator is applied will always lead to disaster.
    But I do enjoy the challenge!

    Maybe I should just go back to one of these:

    You all have a Merry Christmas also!!

    Ugly Sticks give me nightmares. I flew a perfectly good FW190 through one once.
