Hi Bob -
All - I've had the privilege of flying in Bob's plane recently and we discussed the speed and paint issues mentioned here. I'm no expert in the airflow or amount those stripe ridges may affect speed, however, when we were in level flight, the right aileron was deflected up an inch at the trailing edge while the left one was level. Again, on the ground, both taxiing straight and then parked straight, the right one was up the same amount and the left was still level. I would think that would have some affect on performance, regardless of ball being centered.
In Bob's picture, although, from the opposite side, you can see the aileron deflected up.
Bob, I think you took a picture from the other side showing that deflection and were going to have Lynn take a look. If you have one taken from the fuselage side facing out and can post that, it's quite prevalent. Any update on that front?
