Default Elevator Trim

Should the trim indicator needle close to the throttle move the entire distance on the scale? Right now, it only goes about half way.

I haven't flown the FW190 for a while but if IIRC the indicator has the same degrees for up and down trim.

The movable stabilizer does not move the same amount up and down though.

What I'm referring to is the amount the needle moves. It doesn't go the entire way in either direction. Only about half way.

Hi,

Manual

"The gauge is graduated from -5 to +5 degrees, but the operating range is -3 to +2 degrees of horizontal stabilizer inclination. The scale is to 0.5 degrees throughout."

What manual?

Kind of like buying a car with 180 on the speedometer, but it won't do more than 120.

I actually have, and have read, the manual. Didn't remember the part about trim.

Thanks
