Heavy Wing

Somehow when Dennis and I installed the wingtips, the left wing tip was not aligned properly.  I had been trying to figure out what was causing the heavy wing and although I’m not sure that is 100% of the problem, remounting the wingtip helped.  I went to Alabama to see Dan Horton who offered to help me figure it out.


One of the things we tried was to check if the leg fairings were facing rearward correctly.


So we put a string on the leg fairings and ran it to the back, the same distance from each leg and matched that at the tail, 48″.  There seemed to be about ⅛” gap in the back of the fairing and the string, but in the end, we felt it wasn’t affecting the heavy wing.  Here was the gap in the aileron and the wing tip.
