What are the advantages of the AeroConversions Trim System compared to the trim tab system in the Sonex Plans?
While the trim tab system in the Sonex Plans is quite capable, the AeroConversions Trim System enjoys the following benefits:
Eliminates the exterior trim tab on the Elevator of a conventional tail aircraft like the Sonex.
Makes fine pitch/speed adjustments simple. There is an infinite amount of fine adjustment. On the Sonex, one full turn on the trim unit equals an approx. 2-3 mph of speed change.
Allows for "hands off" flying even with full flaps. Better system for transition training or giving instruction.
Perfect for "Y-tail" or "V-tail" aircraft where the addition of an elevator trim tab is not practical/possible.
