    If you were going to design a 2 or 4 place, HIGH WING, Light Airplane with a Fixed Gear, which Vertical Stabilizer design would you select?

    1. The old Cessna "Straight" Vertical Stabilizer design as found on their 1950's era 172's.

    2. Of the Mooney Vertical Stabilizer design?

    Is one really better than the other or are they about equal in performance?

    If one is better than the other, then WHY?

    THANKS !!!
