I have a J230 SP.

I am considering installation of a trim tab autopilot from Levil aviation. The documentation discusses need to check and possibly balance the aileron and elevator after installation of the tab and servo. I am not the builder and I could not find any  references to balancing control surfaces in the build documentation.  If I disconnect the aileron it drops.

Does anyone have experience or insight to share?

Scott Severen of US Sport Planes provided the following


- Please refer to:

Sections:  6.53.4,  6.65.3.   6.74.  21.4 and Table 21-1
 
The trim system could be added for an ELSA or EAB, but is not approved for SLSA.
Hope the sis helpful.
