Default RE: longitudinal dihedral


This looks like a debatable subject that has an answer best explained in terms that the layman can understand. Somewhat akin to "water seeking its own level" in simplicity. If anyone wants to know about this water principle theory pm me.

In my limited experience any moderate deviation from an incidence of 0-0 involving a symmetrical wing and stabilizer had to be compensated by elevator offset. That is what it took to make my CMP Leo fly level ,hands off, at cruising speed.

I could go on and on but I won't.
