Don't know what the deal was with the landing! It was almost like a downdraft or something. I kept feeding up elevator in but it kept coming down.
Somebody said I have no "Flair" (flare) ha ha!
I also found out after the flight that the reason the plane would not trim out. I was holding about 1/4 stick left aileron the whole flight. When I landed John, Mike and I looked it over and found the elevator halves to be just a little off towards the right, hence me having to "hold it" level. Got that fixed. Also looks like the wings may have the slightest amount of "anhedral"! I don't know if this has any affect on how it flies. But, John told me I could get that out too by supporting the plane by the tips and weigh it down on the fuse to level the wings or a little dihedral. Then hit the top of the wing with some heat. I'll probably fly it again before I do that and see if my trim issues are solved.
