Culver V Simplifly
« on: February 09, 2012, 09:51:49 PM »
This photo of a Culver V, shows the relationship between the flaps and the horizontal stab when the Simplifly system was set in the "land" position.  The V had very limited up elevator travel.  You really needed this nose-up trim to avoid problems with flairing.

That's me and a very true statement . The Simiplifly takes some time to rig and the only written instructions I could find were stenciled on the back wall of the cockpit inside the fuselage. We read them with a flashlight and somebody outside copied it down; never could get a readable photo.

It would probably be worthwhile to post those rigging instructions on the website.  If you'll send them to me, I'll get them up.
