Subject: Balance and Trim...??
Hi, just been out for a fly!!!...A good 20 mins of launches and a little thermaling.... Several weeks ago a club mate checked out the balance and we figured I had to much nose weight in place. Since then I have taken out some lead balls and tried again today...in order to slow it down I had to set in more than I expected in Up trim...so much so that it then started looping off the top of the SAL........Do I need to set trim for SAL and then quickly feed in glide trim once she is up in the air???? I am not sure what to do...it was settling down ok after the launch though.. Rgds Laurie
