Right turn at altitude, straight and level flight - Ercoupe 415-D

16 Oct 2019 13:27 #2298 by Todd Halver
I have only been flying my Ercoupe for a couple months now so still getting used to the aircraft. Had the opportunity to complete my 150nm XC requirement for my PPL yesterday and noticed a consistent right turn when in straight and level flight at 3000 AGL with little wind at altitude. Let go of yoke and it gently rolls into an 20 degree right turn. Is this the result of the flight controls needing adjustment or is this a common performance characteristic (don't believe it would be). I understand typical left turning tendencies but not sure what is contributing to this right turn. Remember, new to the Coupe so I have a lot to learn - any help would be appreciated.
