Hey everyone, I am repainting my V35TC and have already had the ruddervators painted and balanced by Hammock Aviation in Ennis, Tx. I am having trouble finding official documents relating to painting and balancing my Ailerons and Flaps. Does anyone know where I can find that information on this website?

All of the info you need to balance any flight control is in the shop manual.
The shop manual is not provided for free from Textron like the parts manual is.
You shop should have one available.

Thank you Bob, I was able to find this online for balancing Ailerons.

This seems like what I was looking for. I have also saved a copy of it should the link go dead if anyone needs it in the future.
