We just don't use that around here.
noisily and stubbornly defiant; "obstreperous boys"
boisterously and noisily aggressive; "kept up an obstreperous clamor"

Would appear they use it at Princeton. Maybe we should have both paid attention at school.

And yes, sorry, this discussion has wandered a bit off topic. This reflects the integrated nature of the design of an aircraft. Move the main gear back you need more lift from the canard to get airborne in the same distance. Extract more lift from the canard you affect the stall characteristics. I would rather have my aircraft's tail (when I build one that is) hit the ground while parking or loading it then while flying it.
