All of the aileron trim to compensate for the original builders crooked wing is now gone! I am very pleased with the end results!!

Thanks for following along!!!!

So both wings were set to 0 degrees an now you have both at 2 degrees postive? what did that change for you? maddog

Re: Weiss 1/3 Fokker DVIII

As the DVIII is a high wing monoplane design, I found that before I added 2 degrees that it was always hunting up and down and required a lot of elevator trim changes during flight. The incidence change has made for a smooth flying model. Once the trim was initially set on the test flight I have not had to fiddle with it at all.
