Rogerck Posted December 19, 2011 Report Share Posted December 19, 2011 When the trim tab on our 2006 CTSW is adjusted to maximum nose UP position, there is not adequate deflection to fly hands off at 63 kts, the recommended best glide speed. Similarly, max nose up trim will not trim the stick to zero pressure (a small amount of back pressure is still required) at 55 to 50 kts on final. Is this normal? When viewing the trim tab on the ground in maximum nose DOWN position, the tab is almost level with the stabilizer, rather then pointing upward. Again, is this normal? In other aircraft that I have owned or seen, the trim tab adjustment has a definine upward to downward pointing range relative to the elevator? Are the aerodynamics of the CT/stabilator different? Appreciate the input. Roger K. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
