dimit Posted February 18, 2012 Report Share Posted February 18, 2012 I've heard of and tried a variety of methods for "diagnosing" a high-power, neutral, or low-power stuck pedal. Personally, on a JR the method I've had best results with is to fly at 60 mph and see how much Tq is required to centre the ball. If it's more than hover Tq it's high-power, less than hover Tq is low-power. Then I have a better idea of what to expect at the bottom end of my approach. I don't really know why this method works, though. At 60 mph the tail fin is working pretty hard, when hovering it ain't... Makes me scratch my head and wonder. I've tried this method in an Astar at 60 kias and it turned out that the indication was quite wrong. What method do you prefer? Why do you like it? Can you explain why it works?
