Should be constantly adjusted for hands-off flight, so no reminder needed. It's on the Pre-Takeoff Checklist, where there are ni aerodynamic forces acting to remind you.

Probably similar reasoning why "Gear- Down" isn’t included on the Pre-Takeoff Checklist.  ;)

But the Bonanza doesn’t have the same physical gear position indicator we have with the floor board indicator. We don’t need mirrors to see what our floor board indicator already shows.

Mine does. As I previously wrote, I have  five things I look at. The gear switch is down,  the green down indicator is illuminated, the mirror on the right wingtip, the mirror on my left wingtip and the indicator on the floor.  It looks just like the ones on my previous. Mooneys.

No, it's on the Pre-Start checklist.

Yeah, I was trying to be funny.  Maybe not successfully.

I just supposed that you flew a J-bar . . . . No problem.
