Hey guys,
I am obviously to stupid to convert the numbers provided into something which makes sense. I am given an "arm" in the POH and I know the weight. Now, I am asked in SD to enter the "lever arm (lon)" as well as the graph with numbers either in "monent/1000" or in "distance to datum". Can anybody enlighten me how to convert the numbers correctly?
Thanks
Constantin

Hi,

I know it isn't exactly my plane and hence, the numbers are subject to change (my aircraft was bought crashed and is currently undergoing the repairs, but I am intending to play a bit and see what I can do and these numbers will do for the job and give me an idea what I can do.

Thanks for your help!

arm is the same as lever arm (lon) is the same as distance from datum.
