Wow Jay, you can do touch and goes, that must be a long runway !

To Kevin’s point about them all being hand
built: My wing is intentionally mounted leading edge down
relative to plans. I never fly mine with the reflexor
deflected trailing edge up! Mine is in trail at takeoff and
deflected down for cruise and landing. Whatever works. You
need to test this during your flight test period, so I would
suggest you not put hard stops in until you have tested.
The range of the reflexor can be extended
beyond the plans limits. Mine go to a max of 10 degrees down
and 6 degrees up, and I still have full aileron effectiveness
with mine deflected full down. They serve as “flaps” when I
am landing, but I need to pull them to neutral if I am doing a
touch and go. (I have a tri-gear)
From memory. I believe the limits on the
reflector are 2° down and 6° up according to plans.
I have never flown my plane with any
trailing edge down setting.
They are all hand built. So yours may be

Very interesting and informative as
always. Thanks everyone.
Follow-up on a comment by Chris Walterson and maybe a
terminology lesson for me.
Chris was talking about the main wing not flying and
needed to "add reflexor"
When I think of adding reflexor, that would reduce
lift on the main wing and increase aircraft pitch.
It sounds like what he did was to add flaps, as in
Is this correct?
How much "down aileron" can people get from their
I would have thought none because reflex means deflect
control surface up?
