Does the Karat have have any wing stagger. Most designs seem to have some positive stagger but looking at the interplane strut arrangement on the Karat it may have no stagger or possibly negative stagger. While positive stagger may improve lift efficiency this doesn’t make sense with an aircraft that spends half it’s time inverted where positive then becomes negative stagger. I guess the best arrangement would be zero stagger. Maybe aerodynamically stagger doesn’t matter that much and then it just becomes a style issue, where a little positive stagger “looks nice” when the model is sitting on the ground and it looks right.
What do you mean by positive or negative stagger?
