RE: Incidence and Lateral balance
CG first, according to plans. Next aileron trim and elevator trim. Hands off from one side of field to other. Fly JR, you change trim rate to 1% rate. Do not fly low quality servos, otherwise this experiment is fruitless. Fly JR 8411 or JR 8611A servos or other high quality servos. The best you can especially on ailerons, then elevators.
After plane flies perfect level left to right and right to left you are done. If the tail drags (nose up) during level cruise (all above trimming is at 60% to 75% throttle fixed position). Positive incidence in stabilizor brings the tail up. You will need corresponding up elevator trim. This is ok. Again, any changes to tail incidence be sure to re-trim level flight as above.
With all straight and level trim set, trim for hands off uplines. Adjust thrust then throttle to rudder if it needs just a little more right rudder on upline. Next is downline. You trim for staight uplines and downlines. These are the most important. Taught to me by a TOC champion and legend. Mostly left rudder trim with low throttle. Double check central trim by doing hoizontal figure 8's and watch the nose and tail.
Now, before I changed wing incidence, I mixed in some right aileron with low throttle. This kept the wings (and plane) tracking straight in a spin entry (particularly inverted spin entries, since at the time it was tough putting in left rudder when approaching the spin entry). The issue with the idle-to-aileron mix- I found that the wings would (very slowly, like 5 degrees to the right) drift at/during the bottom of a pull out. Example would be at the bottom of a square loop, as the plane pulls out of a vertical down line to horizontal, (going fast) the plane would roll slightly right as its going fast... So put in left wing neg incidence so it will require right aileron trim for straight and level cruise speed flight, and as the plane slows down that right aileron trim takes over, resulting in a nice straight, stable spin entry (either inverted or upright). This works the same way as trim tabs on full scale cessna's.
Just started aggressively cranking in the adjusters on the left wing and the plane flew like magic. This is what you do if you trim for straight and level, cut throttle and the plane drifts to the left. If it drifts tot he right when throttle is reduced to idle during a spin entry, do the opposite.
