So I have to ask...even though it paints me with the big old rookie brush.

What is involved when people say you have to "trim your rudder now?" I have flown the patch a bit and I have to twist hard on my stick (I dont have peddals but im sure im going to have to go get them now :P) hard to keep most planes airborne. Is that what you guys are refering to by trimming your rudder?

The trim is a kind of stabilizer for "flying straight": In game, you have to look into your control settings and you will see trim keys for aileron (right, left, neutral) for elevator (up, down, neutral) and for rudder (left, right, neutral). It will help you to keep your plane in line with small imput at the right trim control.

Ya, you have to trim alot more now, re~trimming constantly for different flight conditions as far as I can see over the last hour or so of playing around with the 4.01.

I often us *rudder* trim to keep wings level - in the absence of alienron trim (Tx?http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_mad.gif) Fortunately, the trim response is adequate now to match trim requirements of the New FM and let us fly the plane properly.

Yeah, I'm still waiting for the fallout from that last link. The Bf-109's supposed to have a trimmable tailplane, ya know, and I don't know if people could handle that fact without this board going down in flames. The Bf-109 is *supposed* to be able to pull harder when you trim the nose up...
