Trim Flying


Well-known member
BTDT, like flying a rudder only thermal glider on a buddy box with a student. Needs a very stable craft, a huge site and very calm day to be successful. You COULD increase the throws, but imho that's cheating.

This could be like name that tune, only name your sticks. (yung unz won't get the reference) I can fly that plane with 2 trim tabs!

An efficient well set up & stable plane can easily be flown on the trims but all you will be able to do is to fly gently around on a particularly calm day.
This electric plane was actually designed to do it but primarily to reduce control movement to a minimum to save power.
On a powered flight (no soaring) of a couple of hours the energy used by the servos starts to become significant. ;)
