a few years ago and I had great success with removing the dihedral and adding ailerons, with just a little differential, ie a couple of mm up on each aileron in the neutral position. As I remember it, the aileron panels were about 80% of the span and 10% of the chord.
If the Canary were mine, I'd do the same.
What could possibly go wrong?
The worst could be when I take another trip back to Germany pick up another one. But I still like canard addict comment about ducted fan, now that would be something.....maybe a 20 or 30mm fan.
