fuselage transverse level

fuselage transverse level: 2014-06-26

Lumix DMC-FT1

Checking the transverse (or thwartwise) level of the fuselage, with the digital level on the levelling jig. This photo is looking aft; the display shows 0.1 degree, with a down-arrow at the left side of the display and an up-arrow at the right-hand side. This means that to get a true zero level the left-hand side of the unit would need to tilt down a further 0.1 degree; thus the fuselage is tilted 0.1 degree high on the starboard side (the left side of this photo).

With the fuselage set as in the above picture, transferring the digital level to the tailplane torque tube shows that it is at the same transverse angle - 0.1 degree starboard-high.
