Re: Elevator Trim Springy Thingy Really Needed?

I had to read your question several times. Please, when you write something like this, let people know that your flying a GU Canard (which doesn't use Sparrow Strainers), and have the aileron reflexer installed...
So your asking about should you use the trim springs. Yes. Without the springs, holding 20 pounds your arm will eventually turn to jelly like mine! I also used the springs to reduce the stick force on final thus making a better landing.
I don't hear this much from people but on my Q200 in cruise I liked to trim the Reflxer all the way up, which made the forward stick for really high. Think of it this way, if you command less lift from the ailerons (reflex up) then you got to command less lift from the canard (stick forward). So less lift = less drag = mo speed! I used to gain about 4 mph for free doing this. Yes, I needed my trim springs!
