Should it be too hot to touch or not
I think the above post has been adequately addressed. The suggestion was THIS. End of discussion.
As long as I have drifted off topic, I have a question. The Sky Surfer stalls fairly easily. I just built a Lazy Bee (48" WS) and I cannot make it stall no matter what I do. Can someone explain why that is (aerodynamically)? My guess is that the wing on the LB is so large and close coupled to the empennage that a stall (conventional-hold full up elevator while at idle) just won't happen. Any of you A&P guys (or ??) have a simple explanation. OR ..... Here is a video of my plane:
