Lots of fun messing with glassing......Is that the tail that Thomas put plans up?
If so it is a great tail for stability.....:party:

I think it matter which way you motor is turning......P factor.....
I know mine I have to put a lot of Left pedal in to it going down the runway.....
When I went flying in Macon with Steve his Parson's takes Right pedal.....

Assuming your "clockwise" is standing behind the gyro looking forward, the front of your vertical stab should be to the right, and the rear to the left on a short tail that is below the center of the prop.
My angle is set so there is a little left rudder needed at full power on take-off, and about the same right rudder landing without power. Seems to be a very good compromise under all conditions.

You have any pictures of your tail? ok be nice..........:lol:

No. . . none of my tail :rolleyes:, but I found a picture of the DesertBee in the hangar at Mentone from last year.
Here is an extract from it that is about as good as I have right now. If I remember next time I go to the airport, I'll try to get a better one.
The front and rear mounting brackets are identical, but turned 180*.

I see you have your tail off set also. I might end up having to do the same thing or put on some type of trim tab to help out. It takes a lot of Left pedal to keep it going down the runway straight. If there is a crosswind coming from the right well forget it. I found out that the other day.......:blabla:
Would be great to get a better look see at the bee tail...!
