G'Day Tim,
Thx for the great Pic's and measurements ... are really helpful ... Am i understanding u rite that with standard Gear position ..(not wedged) ..u can hold ur Nose wheel off after touch down like say a cessna/cherokee ..or ..?

Also i presume we all have the same 'molded stepped ' trailing edge on the under skin of our Flaps and Ailerons ...is that what u have as well Tim ..?

Thx

Graham

Hello Graham,

Yes, with the standard gear position I can hold the nose wheel off after touch down,with my enlarged elevator. If you measure your stock elevator you will know how much I extended mine. 1 1/2" I think.
At main gear touch down I have to be sure not to relax stick pressure or the nose gear will drop. If you can measure your cowl joggle to main gear center line you can compare yours with several others that "OC" has on a spread sheet. As I understand it, if you wedge your main gear forward it reduces the speed of the nose drop which reduces the need for a larger elevator to hold the nose

Mine also came that way but I filled them in with micro balloons to create the 3/16 to 1/4" squared off trailing edge.

Good to hear from you,

Tim

Tim,
Thought about checking that main gear to 'joggle' measurement ..but wasn't sure what the joggle was ..? ...but since thinking about it guess it is the lip/edge that the cowl mounts onto ...yep .??

Wondering too.. if it was a building step in the manual to 'fill in' ( with micro balloons or some similar material ) the under skin trailing stepped edges of the flaps/ailerons/elevators ..like u have ...or whether u have added the 'fill in' as ur own individual touch .?

Graham.

+++++"OC" covered this one in his response to you.. He is very helpful! Thanks "OC"

+++++ No, it was not in the manual. I filled it in to get the airodynamics benefit also ai thought it looked better.
Caution: As you know, anytime you add weight to the trailing edge of a control surface it requires more counter balance weight.
