Hmm... not so fast
My experience is different than the previous reply. Although I agree that the trim indicator has nothing to do with the flight of the aircraft, the trim range I saw after my build did not favor centering the neutral trim tab position in the center of the trim indicator travel.
In my plane at least, takeoff trim indicates about 1/4 up from the bottom, fast cruise nearly at the bottom, and landing at the top.
The original OP doesn't mention what indicator system he is using. I set the trim range using the trim setup routine in the Dynon Skyview.
This may all be caused by something like the ratio of the trim arm swing in relation to the tab throw, I don't know, but it is what it is.
Note: all of my parts are stock Vans electric trim system connected to a Dynon HDX display.
