My attempt to fly without counter weights was recommendation from Skyboy designer. He was telling me that his personal aircraft has exactly the same tail and boom and he removed them long time ago. What you see on picture below is only brackets without weights. That was bad idea. I see 3 things different on his aircraft vs Skyboy:If you have weights already on a surface, you are a brave soul to remove them.
- tail load on Skyboy is higher
- stabilizer incidence 5.7° vs 1 or 2°
- Tail on Skyboy is working in very turbulent environment
