i know on a normal wing/tail aircraft, the washout helps keep the tips from stalling as they have a shallower aoa and a lower stall speed as a result. so if they had inverted airfoils on the tips, the tips would not create the lift as the center section stalls, instead they keep pushing down, deepening the stall and *crunch* thats the end of that experiment lol
does that sound right guys?
