Re: Reflexor

Hi Mike,

In my opinion you are overthinking this. Those who know me are laughing now because I am famous for over thinking things when I was building. Fact is that you won’t know what the “right” settings are until you fly it. Then you can put markings on it and use those as your guide. Just build it and move ahead. My two cents.

Hi Chris,
I think I understand what you are saying; more weight requires more lift.
And the reflexor can be used to trim with the ailerons rather than the elevators.

I was considering neutral to be both ailerons with 0° deflection from what the plans call for. At that setting should not any trimming be able to be done with the elevator ( with correct C of G)?

The reason I am thinking of a detent is that I've been reading how powerful the reflexor is and am considering that if it was inadvertently left in the wrong position at take off it could quickly be set in a neutral spot without over correcting.

For that matter, even when setting it for take off, I could know by feel where a starting point is.

Your thoughts?


BTW , I picked up a small engine throttle handle at Princess Auto yesterday👍...can't wait to install it

neutral position. Neutral at 900 lbs will not be neutral at 1250.
