Elevator Trim Gauge error?


Recommended Posts

Is the FW190 trim gauge reading the wrong way round? i.e. when I trim the nose up the gauge reads -ve degrees. I know the trim tab actually goes down (-ve) pushing the elevator up (+ve). It just seems intuitively wrong for elevator and nose 'up' to show -ve on the gauge. Is it showing tab degrees?

'Minus' would put the leading edge down and cause the nose to rise.




I think this explains the logic and that it is, in fact, the correct way around.
