When I first started flying my RV-6 I was surprised to find that applying FULL aileron produces buffeting from the Ailerons and that at best the roll rate is only the same as at about 80% deflection - maybe even less.

My preferred way of measuring this is an in cockpit gopro or similar - preferably showing the stick position as well if possible - just fly 2 continuous same direction rolls and time the video.

Good deal. I meant to say earlier that you can get the complete set of plans AND construction manual from Van's on a DVD for (IIRC) $10.00.

The advantage of that is you can put them on a memory stick or your phone or tablet and have them with you all the time, so that in the event of a problem away from home, you have quite a bit of info to assist you in solving the problem.

I did the same with all of my schematics, avionics manuals, engine documentation, etc.
