Hover - Pedal force - Eblezien - 12-20-2019

Can anyone confirm or provide input as to the required left pedal force (not deflection) required for an IGE hover?  I'm used to an R22 where the pedals feel light and pretty easy to push.  In the xe285, during a hover, I need constant left pedal pressure/force... To the point were my left leg starts to get a bit fatigued.  Are your mosi's like this too?  I have plenty of control authority, it's just the constant push that's required to keep the nose straight.  Looking forward to your input.

Heavy left pedal in comparison to the 22

So you're saying this is normal?


RE: Hover - Pedal force - FlyGuy - 12-23-2019

Yes, normal. Will be gone once in forward flight.

I agree with Mike


RE: Hover - Pedal force - Eblezien - 12-26-2019

Ok, thanks for the confirmation. I just wanted to verify that's normal.

Mine has a heavy left pedal also.  Can keep the right foot on the floor and just add or reduce left pedal.
