Hi Ian
Why would you want to remove the slats?
Hi Griffin

A while ago a guy in Australia experimented and found that by removing the slats and fitting vortice generators along the top of the wing, performance increases while stall speed/characteristics remain acceptable.

See http://www.stolspeed.com - all interesting reading...

No new Savannah models have leading edge slats and follow the principles as described by John Gilpin at stolspeed.com
