However, I have to admit I would prefer the cockpit
configuration to be tandem instead of side-by-side.
Add my vote for side-by-side. I still have my whale
(RHJ-8), and most pilots have really enjoyed the
seating. No shouting back and forth down a long tube,
MUCH friendlier for rides, shared set of instruments.
Easier for instructor to see what's going on with
student and hit him. Visibility impact is not so much !
CG management is more challenging especially if
pilots are far enough in front of wing for good
Much-appreciated side-by-side designs include
Platypus and Akaflieg Darmstadt D41 (sadly no
more). Most pilots who have flown these really
like the arrangement !
Always lots of opinions out there ;-)
Best Regards, Dave
