If you're worried about crash survivability then these may not be the planes for you. I had a good friend killed in an airshow accident in a CAP10. He had control problems, jammed ailerons, and had to put the airplane down hard in a field. The landing gear dug in and rotated the wing part way out of the fuselage. The problem is that the crew are strapped to the wing in these designs and as has been pointed out, the wing seems to be much stronger than the attach points, especially in the negative G direction. When this happened it flung him forward and smashed his head into the instrument panel.We have a lot of high country here in New Zealand and every so often someone comes to grief in mechanical turbulence, which can be pretty severe if you hit a rough patch.
Thanks for the replies Guys - I appreciate it.
