Default Nice!

Coincidentally, I’ve been working on something similar just down the taxiway from you on our -6A.

Looks great!👍

That’s a great looking -8!
Are there any G limitations with those wingtips?

Thank you, and thanks for all the nice comments!

No G limits that I’ve seen. I’m curious why you’d ask? Is there something about their appearance?

Very nice paint job.

However, people need to be aware of "FAR §45.25(b)(2) If displayed on the fuselage surfaces, horizontally on both sides of the fuselage between the trailing edge of the wing and the leading edge of the horizontal stabilizer."

Display of the N number under the horizontal stabilizer is not allowed.

Mainly just thinking out loud. The first thing that came to mind was additional weight vs stock. Then I thought maybe the winglet would affect lift at the wingtip in such a way that could add additional stress during aerobatics.
They look very cool regardless.
