Stevens Aero XS480 - tendencies
I've really been enjoying my XS480 lately. It's turned into my favourite plane!
I'm trying to stretch my skills and have some questions.
1) Flat turn - rudder application makes it bank a little (expected) but it also pitches up. This doesn't seem to be normal. Is there something I should tweak with my setup?
2) Knife-edge - not that I'm good at it but top rudder also makes it pull towards the canopy which I guess is the same behaviour as #1
3) Spins - I can't actually get it to stall at the entry. It just kind of mushes nose up but the nose never really drops.
Move CG aft? I have to do some equipment re-arrangment so before I do I want to know if that's the direction to go.
