Default ef edge tucks to the canopy! any fixs

just wonder you other guys that have the ef edge what you have done to take out the tuck to the canopy when knife edging, did you mix it out or adjust the cg or thrust line?

Too far aft CG and too much rudder throw have been reported to cause coupling..

I have found that if your ailerons are not aligned corectly you will get some tucking...My .02

When I moved my CG way back, as Chuck said, I got the couple. It didn't seem to improve anything dramatically so I moved it up again. Viola, no more couple/tuck.

Raise each aileron up about a 1/16 of an inch. Keep the CG in the 1/4 to 3/4 back from the spar range.

Hold a little up elevator, mixing these things out make your thumbs lazy and detune you to what you aiplane is really doing. Not saying you shouldn't, but on this plane the coupling is so little it is just not worth it, just my .02 cents worth. Jeff W.

Mine had zero coupling, that's why I suggested the trim change. Honestly, mine did left hand only KEs. On the top of a tight KE loop, it needed some correction, but just to fly KE, it needed nothing but 1/4 rudder and a bit of power.

More throttle. Sorry, Coos agitation hasn't worn off. Did the same as TT, had to raise my ailerons 1/8 - 3/16". It does nice big KE loops with almost no correction now. Awesome plane.
