Vortex Generator For Better:
Our customer shared these photos of his Chinook and after installing the Airwave Vortex Generators he experienced a 5 MPH reduction power on stall from 40MPH to 35MPH.
Typically the wing use to drop dramatically to one side and now it has a more gentile straight mush.

I bought a set of these and put them on the wings of my RV-7, they
worked perfectly. My airplane stalled around 60 mph and would depart
flight by one wing dropping. With these vg's it would not stall. At a
45 degree angle and 1000 rpm it was backing down very slowly 50 mph. It
never tried to stall, one wing would burble a little and with a minimum
of control input it would stop the burble. I checked the top speed and
it did not effect it at all. At 183 mph they started to blow off the
wing. They were attached with carpet tape. Trust me, carpet tape want
hold up at 183 mph. Good product. I have ordered another set to replace
the ones that blew off. Loctite 401 this time.
Installed these on a QuadCity Challenger2 short wing. They work great,
made the aircraft very stable in stol operations.

Put a set of these on an Aerolite 103 which has Dacron sailcloth wing covers. Used JB Weld PlasticWeld and have not lost one in the ten flight hours they have so far. Took not quite two hours to install them.
I dont have hard numbers, but no-flaps climb-outs feel a shade
slower. Might just be the weather getting hotter. Where these really
shine, though, is on final with full flaps. Im landing 8 MPH slower and
these things make the wings stick to the descent like glue. Very
Highly recommended. Will definitely put them on the next plane.
