I am experimenting with different aircraft designs. The one I am trying right now is a canard (horizontal stabilizer at the front) and the main wings are quite far back. I wondered if it would be of any use to put the vertical stabilizers at the tip of each wing as a winglet, but that would not have much direction control effect as the wings are rectangular (not swept back).
The other and best option for me would be to put the vertical stabilizers at the tip of the horizontal stabilizers as a winglet, as shown in the picture.
Problem is, as I said before, the horizontal stabilizers are at the front and this then means the vertical stabilizers would be at the front as well.
Are there any disadvantages to putting them at the front? Would it even work properly?
Thanks in advance and have a great day
As a canard design could sweeping the wings back a little add enough yaw stability to make small forward flying rudders feasible? (Pterodactyl inspired).
