The place for technical discussions about GA and flying.
Technical discussions about GA only, please.
My Seneca 3 has a problem when in level flight both control yokes are down to the left. On the ground ailerons are level and control yokes are level to. Rigging has been checked. There are fixed trim tabs on the flaps
Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Rudder trim out of kilter?
Where is the ball?
Failing all that you need someone to give the flap trim tabs the appropriate 'adjustment'
Use email please rather than PMs

Check the balance ball with a spirit level across the correct reference (or a long bit of plastic tube with some water to the wing tips)
If the system is the same as an Arrow, the flaps can be independently adjusted via the tie rod to the actuating arm - it is going to be a LAE/A&P job to do that bit though
You can sleep in an aeroplane, but you can't fly a house
I had a similar problem on my seneca 111 ,both the yokes have couplings which attach them to the aileron system,when the plane is on the ground see how much play there is between when the yoke moves to when the aileron moves if there is to much play get your engineer to change the couplings,also a fuel imbalance will cause the problem
