When I am on short final at 55-60 mph, full flaps and with someone in the rear seat,
I am trimmed nearly to the forward stop. My SC has an 0-320, 160hp engine. I have checked everything about the trim; I have full trim travel, etc. Windonhisnose has a nearly identical 160 hp SC and ends up with the same trim settings also. I am assuming that this is "normal" but seems like a design flaw. In the graph below, this condition is points "A" and "B". Just seems like the trim setting should not be so far forward when we are so far inside the allowable weight & balance envelope. Any thoughts?
