Hi, I recently bought a Rosenthal DG600, to find that it has a floating wing joiner. In other words the fuselage is hung on four steel rods, while the wing joiner is completely loose from fuselage. That is genial, because I guess all wings bendings, vibrations etc are not transmitted to the fuselage. The wing joiner does not have a break point as it is free to bend over the entire fuselage span. Now I'm wondering what are the disadvantages. I guess after a hard landing, the wing roots could get more damaged? The setting of the geometry is more difficult because the lack of a solid joiner tube? Working on the Pilatus B4 I could use the same system. I'm at the point wings are done and should proceed with wing - fuselage fixation. Anyone experienced with that type of joiners, that would like to share experiences and suggestions? Thanks! Ric
