    Vertical tail question

    Centering has nothing to do with it. After the rearrangement of the wing, aerodynamic leveling is violated. The plane began to fly with a glide. There are two ways to remove glide: - the angle of deviation of the ailerons - deflect the rudder. To keep the pedals level, tilt the aileron in the...

    Vertical tail question

    How much lead do you have to put in the nose of the aircraft when lengthening and weighting the tail boom? By reducing the angle of attack of the wing, you will reduce the Mz of the wing. This will reduce the angle of horizontal tail. However, this will decrease the angle of attack during...

    It is impossible to make a spring from carbon fiber. Carbon fiber has a high modulus of elasticity and low elongation. Therefore, it has low energy absorption. The largest energy absorption of fiberglass. Only you need to choose the right thickness and width. Poor manufacturing technology will...

    Vertical tail question

    When you rearranged the wing, you violated the aerodynamics of the left and right side of the wing. The left and right parts of the wing you now have different lift and resistance. Therefore, your plane has a glide. Your trimmer is small. It looks like a flap of Garney. Your tail is fine.

    Vertical tail question

    Eugene said: Flexible tail in level flight giving whole aircraft jerking sensation similar to driving small car with big trailer. My foam fixed this problem 100% but it is temporary flying plug. What do I do after removing it? Pull two cables 5 mm in diameter from wing to tail

    You have broken alignment. Therefore, problems with the pedals. Set the trimmer to aileron.

    Vertical tail question

    Alignment should be done taking into account the plumage position.

    Vertical tail question

    Check left and right angle of attack. Or set the trimmer to aileron

    Vertical tail question

    Set the trimmer to one of the ailerons. Perhaps the right and left parts of the wing have different lift or drag. The wing covering is already old.
