    Default Pitot tube angle relative to jury strut or wing

    Just flew my second flight, what a great flier! EX-2 build.

    I looked out the window and noticed the pitot tube is pointing downwards in level flight. The pitot tube is perpendicular to the jury strut making the angle downwards in flight.

    Shouldn't the pitot tube be parallel to the wing bottom?

    Cheers

    Affirmative, should be parallel to the bottom of the wing.
