The only people more amazed than me that this aircraft is ready to fly are my children, who have grown up and left home since I started this project. Before I organise a trailer to take it to the airfield I want to check the angle of each wing relative to each other. As the original reference blocks have been removed some twenty years ago, can anyone advise me how I should do this. I intend using an app on my phone, but am not sure what position I should be measuring from. Any ideas ?
Paul Buckley has kindly come to the rescue and has answered the question. It has however raised another. I have about half a degree of positive incidence compared to the main wing. Is this sufficient for happy flying?
You should be in good shape. The original Q-200 prototype with the LS-1 Canard actually had the canard with a positive 1 degree positive canard incidence relative to the wing (when compared to plans). Yours is within 1/2 degree of that. In my study, you will find Mike Dwyer's airplane is the closest that I have found in regards to matching the prototype, and his plane has been flying to his satisfaction for a few decades now.
