Is there a key-command to fly staight & level in AEP? I thought "Toggle Level Autopilot" would do, but it doesn't -- not sure what this command does? I'm playing around with trimming; but it's kind-of labor intensive fiddling around with up/down/left/right-- is there a simpler way?

It only works in bombers http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif nowadays...
Auto Pilot Enable is more like AI (gunners etc) enabled to "think" rofl and shoot... (better do that yourself http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif )
Level Auto Pilot is what you want - plane will slowly drop though http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif - but again - only in bombers.

and if you want to trim do it as a pilot flying! no other way! - get to speed and alt - hold that using stick and throttle - let it level out - then trim against the position of the stick - leaving stick centered while holding alt/speed - now you are trimmed (it changes with alt/speed change http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif )

Assign em to single-keystrokes (like arrows) under "Controls" in-game http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
