Morgan sierra 100

Hi Pylon
Yes we have read that on servo and anti servo trim system , our trim system is set up such that the trim tab moves independently of the elevator as such the elevator can move through its full range of movement without altering the position of the trim tab relative to the elevator , the trim tab is controled with a ray allen servo and is controled with trim adjust in the cockpit
cheers Craig
 
I see the lower cowl is attached to nose bowl ,bad move as you will need to remove prop to service engine,have modified several cowls to overcome this oversight

The Morgan Cheetah/Sierra was designed without an antiservo tab. I have not heard of this being a problem at this stage. There is a Cheetah in the west which has been flying for a couple of years with an R.C.Allen servo/tab and the owner is quite comfortable with that.
 
Thanks John
when we fitted the wings ,we never liked the finish with a rubber to the fuse ,we used foam to form up the flare and sanded back to the shape then fibreglassed over ,a lot of work but the result was a good line to the fuse

you need to beef up the bearings on the elavator shaft,there is to much movement and trim system is better than a bungee type trim

Jacobs Well would be the best southside, , Boonah westside (best for BNE to Ipswich area), and Caboolture northside.

All about 1hr or less from central BNE.

I think you may find someone qualified to do your test flights at any of those areas, best to do a drive-by and ask around, I would expect...
