Hello all; I'm currently flying the BoB offline campaign (IL-2 FP + Aces), and I'm a bit puzzled by a couple of things:

1) Trim: trim response seems extremely erratic; wither from the keyboard or my cougar. Am I correct in thinking the Hurri does indeed have trim in all three axes? If so; are there any cockpit indicators (moving wheels or levers, etc)?

2) Fuel mixture: According to disk 2; the Hurri has a manual fuel mixture control; but it doesn't seem to do any thing. Again, any cockpit indicators?

3) Supercharger gearing: again, any cockpit indicators to tell you which gear you're currently in?

Thanks for any replies.

1) Same as Spitfire. Next to impossible to trim for level flight. Don't have any problems trimming in any other AC but this gives me a headache.

2) and 3) dunno.

Not all aircraft have trims on all axis, aileron trim on a single is pretty much useless unless you have independant fuel systems as you do not need to compensate for a shift in weight from one side to the other.... The way these were trimmed for variances in build were to dope a section of string to the trailing edge of the wing flying low, the resulting weight of the string would drop the aileron in flight a tad to bring that wing up... minor adjustments to this to get it spot on were by trimming a section off this cord with a pair of scissors, hence the term trimming.......................... there you go History in action http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
