Elevator trim help

Postby scubarider » Wed Feb 14, 2007 9:28 am

Can anyone enlighten me on the instructions for the elevator trim.  There are no directions for mounting the plates etc.  I have lots of parts but can't figure out how to use them.   I have plates for mounting but have several.  Are there different locations?   I do have some pictures for the mounting next to the flaps handle  but just not sure.  Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks!

I made a cardboard template and cut the trim control support plate from .060 aluminum sheet.  It is attached next to the flap handle with adel clamps.  Here are some pix.

Thanks Kevin, you have been a great help to me.  I received three plates labled trim elevator.  Three different sizes.  Does one go on the elvelator itself?  Any words of wisdom on how to mount it?  How far forward etc.?  What angle?  Does it matter?  
Thanks again!
Great pictures!!!

My web page about how I put the trim together is located at:  http://www.tcc.coop/~tpadams/_sgg/m2m3s1_1.htm


I'm also attaching some pic's took of one Cornell Aero Works was constructing - that's how I figured out how to do mine.
