Congrats Brent. They are great airplanes. Things to look for:
-Trim, as you noted. I rarely adjust mine. Once you find the sweet-spot, you don’t need to do much.
-Fuel management. 4 independent 20 gallon tanks and a directive to use the main (inboards) for TO and L.
-Sink rate. It will get your attention if you let airspeed get below 90 MPH and don’t carry any power into the flare. So carry some power and once in ground effect you can pull take the power off as the mains -touch down.
-Flap extension. The Meyers has a low FE airspeed at 125 MPH. So in most cases you will be dropping the gear first to get you to the FE airspeed. It takes some getting used to in that you don’t set approach flaps first and then go to the gear. It’s just the opposite. And same for take off. The book recommends the first notch of flaps for take off. Once you get gear up and it starts accelerating, you need to get flaps retracted and stay under 125 MPH.
Look forward to hearing about your trip. Holler with any questions.
