Ed Cesnalis Posted July 27, 2013 Report Share Posted July 27, 2013 Trim is for cruising, and even then you don't want to use it much for short hops unless you are tired and want to tradeoff flying yourself for some relief on the stick and rudder. Until my CTSW is precisely trimmed in all 3 axis it fights me in a most annoying way. I trim a lot and do it without conscious thought, except for the flaperons, they are enough of a pain that I think about it. Of course flaperons rarely need it The stabilator needs trimming quite a lot but I don't trim for turns because the force is light and short lived. I trim rudder for climbs and descents but not for takeoffs. I also trim rudder for fuel management. When trimmed and in good air my CTSW is a pleasure to fly. Set it and forget it vs fight it?
