Is there any way to use the auto pilot in the Heinkel while still being able to use the bombsights?

On the bombrun it is impossible to trim your plane and drop your payload from the bombsight when your flight takes a 90 degree turn and a 1000 metre drop in altitude just before the bombdrop!

You can use the auto level on the plane but although the wings are level it still loses height.
I am just learning to use the bombsight and find it very hard to keep the plane from drifting and losing hieght whilst in bombaimers position.
Trimming seems to be quite hard to get right and the slightest movement makes the optics disappear in the bombsight.
All help accepted ,Ta
