What is the ideal neutral stick position in a 701? I have the required up down deflections. The stick is nearly vertical at neutral but very far back nearly contacting the front edge of the seat with full up elevator, and quite a ways from the panel on full down. It seems farther forward might work better. I could easily shorten the elevator control tube to put full down a lot closer to the panel. I cannot recall addressing this during the initial installation, nor can I find anything definitive in plans or manual.
It is what works best for you. You have to play with cable adjustments to get it where you want...no need to modify tubes. Mine at full down against stops is close to panel; at full up is against seat, and neutral is close to vertical.but i made it that way. you are right- nothing in the manual on 701...entirely up to the builder.i found it to be a lot of "experimenting" with the 701.figure out where you like the stick in all regimes, and adjust/make cables accordingly. Happy experimenting!
