Re: Kolb-List: Fabric covering the fuselage
--> Kolb-List message posted by: "Carlos" <grageda@xxxxxxxx>
I can't think of a good reason to cover the fuselage if you are in a
temperate climate like Florida or the southern states. If you are in the
north with low temps in the winter then enclosing the frame makes sense.
I have not flown a Firestar without covering so I can't say how it would
handle. It does seem to me like it might help with rudder authority.
It would be like trying to steer a sail boat without a keel.. You will turn
Just my $.02

I ask this once before but did not receive any responses. Is there any
reason to cover the fuselage as is shown in the kolb web site of the white
& yellow firestar? I'm assuming it does not effect flight performance but
wanted to make sure before I took it off. Cosmetics only?
