I'm new to the forums, so I hope I have this in the correct place. I've got a strong pitch trim motor, that runs on a lead screw into some kind of cylinder/shock. My trim motor "ratchets", sounds like a cordless drill when it reaches max torque. I can move the cylinder by hand, but it's pretty stiff. So I screwed it all the way down and cleaned the screw and put a little oil on it, but it didn't help. It has safety wire on both ends and overall it looks like it's seen better days. I'd prefer to maybe disassemble and thoroughly clean it, but I have this vision of the shock shooting out and me never getting this back together again! I thought I could replace the cylinder, but I have no clue on what it is or where to find it. I tried to go to www.strongpitchtrim.com but got some odd website. ANY help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance
Hello folks, I dont have too many hours under the belt, but with all of my flying till date, I dont recollect a good use case for the roll trim (unless the rigging is messed up). I hve never really used roll trim, and most of the tin cans I fly, they DONT even have roll trim. So my question is - on a Cozy 4, is there good value to have roll trim? I was thinking of getting rid of the stock roll trim on the panel, free up some space and make use of the real estate. Thoughts? could the big guns provide some input? Thanks in advance. MN
