I just came across a video of the Saro "Cutty Sark" twin engined amphibian plane
at and the question occurred to me
what planes with engines as high mounted as this one are like to fly ? ISTM
there must be a huge nose-down with power trim problem. In particular, landing
must have been tricky with the reduced power giving a nose up trim right at the
time you are near the stall and I wondered what the original designers did to
counteract that ?
