Default RE: Minicraft Cessna 182 Build and Flight Report

Here are a few shots of the cessna with the new nose strut. I hope this cures the ground handling problems! It doesn't look as neat with the nose wheel pant missing, but once I repair it I'll put it back on.

I also read in another forum about the GP cessna 182, that the stall characteristics I experienced on the maiden were very similar to that particular GP cessna. Which was cured by turning the aileron celvises out two turns. Apparently the ailerons can sit slightly low when setup by the eye and pushing them up slightly will cure the bad stall characteristics.

Has anyone heard of this before? I will do another stall this weekend when I go flying and see what happens..... I also checked the lateral balance which seems fine.
