N601LL is 100 hours now and only remaining item was needing some up elevator trim for level flight and not enough up trim for a proper flaps down engine out glide. The incidence of both wing and stab were good but as it does take quite some force to lift the elevator I decided to try a simple fix. I put an eye hook on stab, drilled a hole in elevator horn and installed s-hook there. Then connecting the two using #64 rubber bands discovered that nine was a good balance.
Test flight successful. Flies level at cruise with zero trim and flies hands off approach with full flaps, full up trim and throttle idle.
