View Full Version : Rudder Trim Yaw left

I've been flying a Yak-1 on a campaign game a lot. With no trimming the plane rolls left due to torque. This is odd because I have torque effects turned off in preferences. Well, I looked up in the forums how to deal with the roll via rudder trim. I trim my rudder to stop the roll and now the plane yaws left. I fly level but the plane does a slow turn left. This is frustrating because I cannot find a way to fix that. So two things: 1. why is the option to turn off torque not working? 2. how can this roll left be corrected without forcing the plane to yaw left?

I found the Yaks dont try to roll near as much as the 109's. However, try a I-16 or I-153 .. then you'll know the meaning of AutoLeveling /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Normally you would use aileron trim to correct this. In FB it doesn't seem to work on the Yaks. It does have a trim tab, but i'm not sure if the real planes had trim.

Use the rudder trim to center the inclinometer, and that is the best that you can do. This is the black ball in the curved tube of fluid.

Also, you should not have a left turning tendency in the yaks, as they have a counter clockwise engine rotation (from the pilots perspective) and this should mean that you need left rudder trim. The sim does have some roll tendency, but you might try adding some deadband to your controller, or decreasing the sensitivity near neutral.

First of all, I'll tell you my trim keys, makes it easier for me, anyhow. Map elevator and rudder trim to your cursour keys. The arrow keys are under Insert, Delete, between main letter keys and Number keypad. Map RControl + cursor Up to cancel trim for elevator, and RControl + Cursor Left for rudder cancellation. I was just testing the Yak-1, and found it does not trim like most planes I've encountered ingame. But try this. 15 clicks nose down, 0-1 clicks right rudder trim. Not perfect, and it dosen't work at 2X, 4X and 8X speed, but it should reduce your workload, which is the whole point of trim anyway, in RL. This trim is at 100% throttle, you may need to adjust if your going slower or faster. When entering combat, all you need is 2-3 fingers, tapping RCtrl + Up and Left cursors to reset easily. Note: the wings WILL NOT be level, but your heading shouldn't change more than about a degree a minute. Hope this helps.

Good hunting,

It might be your joystick. My old Sidewinder precision pro 2, was a little loose around the base. when the stick hanged to one side, the aircraft would bank to that side.

Try increasing the dead-zone of your joystick and see if that helps..

I think that you have
to calibrate your joystick better.
