    Have you used them? If so, what differences in flight performance did you notice?

    Yep, I have been doing lots of testing with them. I had them all over my 87" shp for King 50 this year. On some planes they make a fairly big difference and other planes it's hard to tell. They basically make the air feel thicker. The plane has a much cleaner stall transition and you have much better control surface authority in stalled attitudes.
  3. Thanks Joe. I've been wondering if they really did anything. They seem to pop up on quite a few planes these days.
