I read above several messages from pilots stating that the B737 can be flown with pitch trim at full nose down electric stop, although it requires considerable muscular force and the help of the other pilot.
I also note the EFS system increases forward control column force to approximately four times normal feel pressure during a stall.
Can I thus assume that the pilot testimonies above only apply to conditions where the EFS system DOES NOT kick in ?
And that the B737 does not provide enough elevator authority when the trim is at full nose down AND the EFS system is active ?
