CJ4 with Working Title Mod - trim question

Recommended Posts

HI!

I'm still trying to tame the CJ4, which is not an easy task. I have a serious trimming problem - when my trim is set to T/O trim (looking at the indications from the external view) and I'm taking off, my CJ4 raises its nose at approx. 100 kts and then goes up with the pitch reaching 40 degrees up! I wanted to hand-fly her and do the traffic pattern and land, but before I was able to trim the nose down, I was at 7000 feet 😕 At another attempt I found out that setting the trim to 17% down (again - as viewed on the external view screen) makes it behave like a "normal" aircraft, which requires normal yoke pull to take off, instead of pretending to be another Elon Musk's starship. How is it in your case? Do you also apply that much nose down trim before take-off?

Thanks!

Since you never replied to all the help you got given here, did it help? or do you just start a new topic on the same thing?

For a start there is an trim indicater right in front of you and that is the one to use. When you take off you raise the gear and pull throttle to CLIMB. I could go but you have all the info you needed in you other topic on the same thing.
