Packing and Plates

Recommended Posts

When using both packing and plates and aiming for 190P, which is better to have on top? I have a 4" column with 5' of packed, and five plates, using a dephlem. to control take off. I've been running with the plates on top, but read in a post recently the advise to pack the top plates to someone having a hard time reaching neutral. In my mind it seems like the plates would more easily flood if on the bottom. Thanks.

I ran a 4" packed over plates for quite a while.  From my testing packing is more efficient than plates.  I simply ran one plate to see what was going on in the column.   If space limited, fewer plates and more packed for the same height will give more equivalent plates.
