Per my posts above... I should further clarify that in climb I need to add ~ 3 lbs force on right rudder to center ball. Conversely, in a glide, a slight amount of left rudder is required. Ball is centered with feet on the floor in cruise flight. This indicates the the plane is nicely rigged for cruise. Right rudder in climb is need to offset torque and P-factor, as it should be. And in a glide, with engine making no torque, left rudder is needed to compensate.
I love this airplane - 800 hours in 7 years....
