Hi all,
the Mooney Gear Rigging Tools available to all EMPOA Members are actually with me. I will hand them over to Mr. Wolfgang Oestreich at Ruegen.

Have a nice WE...

Hi, I think I may need to check the rigging on my airplane....I have noticed two things: 1) in straight and level flight I notice that the ailerons on both sides appear to slightly deflected upwards....and 2) I have noticeable wear on my flaps where they are in contact with the trailing edge of the wings....this aspect is particularly concerning as I am worried about doing permanent damage to the flaps.....

My mechanic does not have the Mooney travel boards. How difficult is it to make a set? Or is it better to borrow the set mentioned in the post above? Or are there any shops in the UK that would have a set?

Hi Anthony,
for rigging the ailerons and flaps you do not need the gear rigging tool, as it is used NLY to check the gear retraction link preload.
What you need: applicable Mooney service manual.
Basicly, the retractd position of flaps is adjusted with set screws at the most outboard flap hinge. With those you may also trim the plane flying straight. If this is done, you may rig the aileron droop (on ground their trailing edge has to be a bit lower than the flap trailing edge) so that in flight the line up.
This is done by adjusting the heim bearing on control rod.This will not modify total travel but extreme positions, to be checked with Mooney travel boards (or alternative method of measurement). I do not know which shop in UK has them, i don't have them.
Have fun,

Andi

Hi Anthony,
was thinking about your rigging problem as i was looking at N51740's ailerons today. On ground they droop about 8 mm symmetrically. I think a shop can't set up them correctly unless doing a series of test flights. A mechanic can't do it unless he's a pilot. I am, luckily, both….i did set up mine while traveling, had the tools on board and did adjustments (flap stops and ailerons) as required. If you have the "old" wingtips, the aileron counterweights must line up with top wing surface at cruise seed, than it's perfect. Adjust roll with flap stops. If your plane is straight, the will be no difference at the gap between flap and aileron, left and right. But bear in mind that Mooneys are largely hand crafted and tere is no anticouple buildt into the motor mount, but a dissymmetric fin (vertical stabilzer) layout. This may lead to "differential" flap tuning……have fun!!!!
