    Does there exist such a modification to the roncz/etc spreadsheets?

    Just curious how some parts mixing and matching would affect performance of an aircraft. But it's a quickie base so - standard roncz doesn't work.

    Thanks in advance

    There were some canard spreadsheets via the EAA by someone who wasn't Roncz. Sorry to be so vague!

    No, it is NOT, as the spreadsheet says at the top of the worksheet.

    I am not aware of Sport Aviation ever publishing a spreadsheet to analyze canard configurations.

    Probably just need to sit down and work the numbers by hand...

    Where did I put the scotch? Lol

    Yes, that was the one. Now I remember, I fixed it to work for canards. Unfortunately, it is on a dead PC that I haven't extracted the few bits of data that I hadn't backed up...
