Thats interesting as I would have thought there was down draft and it was directly proportional to the weight of the airframe (circa 400kg in the hover excluding PAX). In this case due to the 22 being of a very light weight construction it just means the down force is not the same as a larger airframe and is possibly minimal...

No draught next to the bubble...... indeed physical forces apply but they also need to be treated in the real world.........the 22 doesn't really have DD in the same way that a Lotus hasn't got understeer.
