My roll trim is on the elevator, not the ailerons. I don/t know the setup
that you have. When I was cogitating about this, way back when, I thought
adjusting the ailerons for trim would be ineffective, since they would
Having said that, I think that Paul Fisher has a very simple roll trim
device which positions the control stick.

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?
