The T-Can or Cantilizer is the small top wing seen on a majority of modern F3A/ Pattern planes used today.
1 - It adds a lift or square area. Normally the incident on this wing is set to match the main wing around .08 degrees. The reason we need the lift is that we are incorporating a slightly smaller main wing with a relatively short wingspan. This is to aid in snap rolling. This is the main reason this plane has this device. Designers are saying it's about 75% of the reason to have them.
2 - The T-can directs the flow of air more directly on the tail end/ fin of the plane. This adds better yaw stability.
3 - The T-can increases the effectiveness of the rudder when at speed to do rolling maneuvers. This allows for less knife-edge pitch and more axle rolls.
