Merry Christmas and a question (as usual)

Sam, congratulations on the "new grandad" and Merry Christmas and have a great New Year all.
Those little white dotted lines in the "trussnauts" picture looks like it could be pretty useful... great picture though.

To all, now the festive season is on the way to "over" I'm thinking about two things for the new year - moving out of my house at the end of January, to another one I haven't found yet! .. and finishing flight testing the Q. One thing from the first flight, when roll trim was used on the split elevator control, to compensate for the single occupant, it affected the neutral position of the ailerons. It naturally wanted to bank (left I think). Does anyone know if this is normal or can be corrected by (eg reducing the strength of the little springs between the elevator control arms? Or do I have to change the untrimmed position of one elevator so the left one is more down than the right when untrimmed? I haven't tried with two on board yet, so maybe it's not a problem then, but it's a bit of effort to fight the bias with only one person aboard. Any comments please?
Many thanks
Chris Rayner (G-CUIK)
