winglets for LS-1 by Brad
A friend of mine is considering installing winglets on his LS-1C. Has anyone ever seen or heard of an LS-1 with winglets? Is there a retro-fit installation for winglets available? I know that the Libelle has a winglet kit, so perhaps the LS-1 has one too. Cheers, Brad Apis 13
