Stinger tailcone
« on: February 02, 2012, 08:34:47 PM »
Does anyone know about the stinger-type tailcones that some Cadets have?  Mine had one when I bought the plane.  I removed it and installed a stock tail cap.  The Stinger mine had looks as though it's a modified Ercoupe item.

Bill,
I have a drawing for a home-made stinger tail cone in an older Cadet news letter.  Will try to scan and post it.

Bill, Insalling the stinger reduces drag and gives you a better flow across the bottom of the stab and elevator. Neal

Here's a pic of the stinger I removed from my Cadet.  I think it may be a modified Ercoupe stinger.
