Hey Matthew
Would you post the Sky Pup wing analysis from the file section of Facebook here on HBA. There are two files

I don’t know anything about that analysis or the person that did it so I’d rather not be the one to start passing it around.

Is Matthew claiming the Sky Pup like Fritz claiming the Volksplane?

I don't believe he wants to see ailerons on a sky pup, like fritz doesn't want to see a tube fuselage volksplane.

Hmmm. Build a successful design by a real engineer, or, "fix" the mostly imaginary "issues" using an analysis from some guy on facebook?

Maybe ask Roger Ford, Dan Grunloh or Mat Hivonich about the Skypup's supposed "inability" to handle crosswinds. Combined, there is about 60 years of flying the design right there.

How much crosswind are you planning on dealing with in a 250 pound airplane?

Build it to the plans and fly it. Don't second guess it with facebook expertise.
