Slope & movement of elevator column
« on: November 28, 2010, 10:43:54 AM »
I have been looking at the elevator drawing (enclosed) from MarkusPilot and his description does not make sense to me

"Slope of Control Column in Neutral Elevator Position approx 10 degrees forward slope
Movement of Control Column approx 10 degrees forward for "down elevator"
approx 10 degrees backwards for "up elevator"

According to this, if the neutral elevator position is 10 degrees forward, then fully aft would just bring it back to vertical and that's not what he shows in the drawing. Am I missing something? Seems to me that the neutral position is much less than 10 degrees forward from vertical.

Thanks,

Erm, yeah, thats thrown me also....

Probably just a typo on the document, at a guess looking at that drawing it looks to me that the column in the neutral position should be 5 degrees FWD of the 90 degree vertical, then fully FWD would be 15 degrees of vertical and fully AFT would be 5 degrees of vertical, then it would match the drawing.

But im sure someone around here will know for sure

David Allen sent me a file (enclosed) which explains it all. You can also visit his website which has an absolute wealth of information especially for advanced builders who know how to use more than just a screwdriver  :). Well worth a look if you haven't seen it yet.
