    Vertical line Trimming Question

    Don,
    Have a trimming question for my 2M Arresti III. On long verticals, it pulls slightly to the canopy. Not a lot, just enough to be annoying. Normally, this would say I need more downthrust. However, this airplane needs minimal down elevator for inverted flight, regardless of power setting, and is probably the best I've had in this respect. Power-on to power-off transition when upright is great; the nose drops VERY slightly when upright. I have a slight low throttle to down elevator mix for downlines.

    Any ideas what to do about the canopy pull in verticals?

    RE: Vertical line Trimming Question

    Jon,

    Thanks for the question. Suggest putting some down thrust in. The fall/or rise of the nose during inverted is more of a CG adjustment. It sounds like your CG is close- it should drop some when inverted.

    Best of flying!

    Don
