The aft-end of my elevator trim tab is up by 1/4" when set for cruise.
This would tend to force the elevator down and thereby cause the
aircraft to descend. It would be more aerodynamically efficient to lower
the angle of attack of the horizontal stabilizer a bit. Has anybody on
this list flying an RV9A determined their trim tab position in cruise?
We were looking into this over the weekend on 2 RV-9A's here at Yuma. Pilot
only and full fuel had both pretty much in trail. Low fuel, pilot and
passenger had down elevator-showing about 1/2 inch or so of the
counterbalance arm above the HS.
I'm wondering if it isn't just an artifact of W&B changes.
