Rans S6 washout setting

Postby Paul Linford » Wed Apr 11, 2018 6:59 pm

In my Rans S6 ES build manual it says to use a 4mm spacer to set the wing washout. This equates to about 0.2 degrees. I have increased the washout to 2 degrees (4cm) at both sides and found the stall characteristics to be much better. I looked in to this after reading about the high number of stall/spin accidents involving the S6 range. Does anyone know why such a small amount of washout is used when all other light GA, and fixed wing microlights have between 2 and 4 degrees?
