All good points.. I Kinda figured that with such a large wing, the wing loading would be fairly low, and would be able to easily break free of the water.. But then again, I am not an aeronauticle engineer..
I didn't really think about the air density being 8 times more for a 1/8 scale vs. a full scale. I am currently trying to wrap my head around that concept, as I am thinking that the air density per square foot wouldn't change, from an aircraft with a 4' wingspan, vs. the AD per sq/ft of a 40' wingspan. it did give me something to ponder and research tho! bt then again, thats why I posed the question here, there is a lot of knowledge to tap into!
Scott, do you think that a set of computer controlled canards be used to keep the cg in its proper place during various airspeeds and cockpit loading situations? another thought, the cockpit of the seawind is completely ahead of the wing, but I guess that the proximity is close enough that the CG won't change that drastically, compared to the distance between the northstars cog and the cockpit.
all great info, tho.. I figured that there had to be a pretty good reason that there were very few GA aircraft that has any sort of delta style of wing, and was just curious what those reasons might be.. and since I like the northstar so much, I just thought I would use that as an example.. the fact that I live on a fairly large lake didn't hurt either!
