The airfoil is kind of a conversation piece=2C but it seems that a Piet with a Cub wing would be a much better flying machine. But with continentals=2C a new wing=2C modern prop etc at what point is it still a piet?npol-List: side by each pietTo: pietenpol-list(at)matronics.comWow....with 15 yrs of collecting Pietenpol memorabilia and every BPANewsletter ever published=2C I never saw mention of plans from BHP for a "side by each" design. The Pietenpol family doesn't even list them. That must be a really rare and valuable prototype that should be preserved in a museum.On a more serious note=3B with the herd thundering to replace original (awful=2C dangerous and out-dated) airfoil with newer and better ones=2C how is the decalage being determined? Seems to me that just bolting the new one up would mean a great deal more positive incidence unless the cabanes were altered. WWLD?
