The Canard Taboo

No.1525720 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Give me the rundown on the canard wing/tail configuration and why it's such a taboo in non-homebuilt general aviation design?

I am aware of a few Iconic designs like the Beech Starship, but canard designs are literally outnumbered 50-1 by more common configurations. IMO it may be a decent option in naturally tail-heavy designs as an alternative to a T-Tail setup.

What does /n/ think?
