Miniplane active arm question


Recommended Posts

Because the rear pivot point of the arms is about 5 inches higher than on a low hang point machine, the motor always hangs down at the correct angle.

It is possible to move the wing attachment clamps fore and aft (no holes & bolts) but as they are roughly at the highest point of the bend in the arms it's generally not necessary for different weight pilots. A few mm adjustment on one side or other will also totally remove any torque effect.


On the active arm version on the Miniplane (ABM) it says on there website that one size arm suits all, and there are no holes for adjusting according to weight, how does that work with a lighter pilot on the same machine as a heavier one :?
