Taking Sockmonkey's comment to its logical conclusion leads to having little if any fuselage aft of the rear wing and usually twin rudders. What do folks think of that approach for the type of LSA/microlight aircraft discussed in this thread and poll?
Making the fuselage stiffer in torsion is less of a penalty in a tandem as the fuselage itself can be significantly shorter as you don't need it to be the lever arm for an elevator.
