My trim tabs are nothing more than a thin piece of aluminum (020"
ormaybe .030" at the most) with maybe a 30 degree bend in them, about 4"
wide, hanging off the wing about 2", and another two inches where it
fastens to the trailing edge with two number 4 screws through the
trailing edge. That's all there is to it. Fly it, figure out what
needs to change (more angle or less angle), remove, bend to correct,
reinstall, and try it again. You'll want to test it at normal cruise
speed, as effectiveness varies depending on the speed. I'll try to get
a picture of one of mine today. The beauty of raw aluminum is that it's
close to transparent....it reflects the color of nearby objects, so no
need to paint it....
