Tuft testing the nose wheel pant. I got a lot of bugs on one side the other day, so I thought it might be mis-adjusted.

The big rectangular object above the nosewheel is the backside of the radiator. Airflow in this area will be examined next.

Hey Jeff - One thing I noticed (from the video) was that ground operations (which is where there are more bugs than there are at 3,000 AGL) results in prop blast from the left side (which is where the bug splatters were at).  So I'm thinking that most of my bugs are hitting during taxi...

I have been experimenting with some rudder trim, but the direction of that would tend to favor bugs hitting the opposite side.
