In the attached photo I circled what appears to be a small airfoil just ahead of and below the canard on this Cozy. Anyone know what this is? I haven't seen it on any other canard aircraft.

Of course, once I looked at the higher res version, I realized it's the pitot tube! I couldn't really see the tube against the spider web fuselage graphics. And here I was thinking it was some cool new aerodynamic lift assist thing. :nervous:
