Q&A: How do wing eccentric cam adjustments affect A/C performance?

"Is it true that having the wings adjusted up on a Cessna 185 will give best speed and having the eccentrics adjusted down will give better low speed performance?" I don't have the 180-185 experience as some although I rigged quite a few Cessna 180-185 Aircraft. I've accomplished enough "eccentric cam adjustments" on the Cessna "Strutted Model Aircraft" in the past however have not attempted to compile any "real data" that would suggest this is a true or accurate statement. Regarding speed gains by decreasing lift or drooping to increase lift it would be questionable just how much actual impact this might have as an end result? Altering eccentrics in any way outside of producing Equal Wing
