LA7 seems to handle better when not trimmed ?
When trimmed for level flight 7 loses alot of up elevator .
Better yank and bank trimmed or untrimmed ?

FB and IL-2 planes have the unrealistic attribute of being able to pitch up better when the when the pitch is adjusted to raise the nose.

So, when in combat (for better turning) have the plane trim at the neutral position or higher. If you have the plane trimmed for level flight (assuming you are traveling at a good clip), your turning will be a little impaired.

or if you are in the same situation as me, which no one else seems to be, you cannot trim at all. even chaging the trim commands has no effect in which case your stuck with that standard slight nose up trim which gets worse the faster you go. Which is very anoying in my 262

Why can't you trim? That makes very little sense. You do realize that the nose trim has to be hit repeatedly (15 times or more) before it makes any difference, and that the trim hits in slowly?
