Aileron balancing instructions question
« on: June 02, 2020, 11:13:50 PM »
Hello All,

I've got the diagram for how to verify the balance on the ailerons and it mentions a maximum static unbalance of 3.5 inch-pounds.  My question is, if 3.5 is max, what is an acceptable number less than that? 

Thanks,
Jason

Jason,

It has been my experience that you wont have a problem with the aileron being too light, as long as the factory weights are still installed. Others might have had that issue but I haven't. Too heavy means you need to add more lead to the front. So, any number from 0.0 to 3.5 in. lbs. should be acceptable in my opinion.
