Trim Problem


Recommended Posts

Hi,

Suddenly I encounter a strange trip problem with almost all a/c

that is when I launch an a/c say the PSS777 or A320 the trim

sets by default all the way down thus Is impossible to take off.

When in air and the A/P sets on then everything works normal.

Has this any connection with the Fsuipc settings?

Thanks

No, none whatsoever. FSUIPC doesn't do anything by itself, it is an interface for other things.

It sounds exactly as if you have the autopilot enabled on the ground, by default. Try switching it off.

Thanks for your kind clarification Pete,

however the A/P is off, the problem starts with the call of the A/C

and before starting pre-flight arrangements.

Is the trim not re-settable? When you use the NumPad 7 and 1 keys, will it adjust, or does it keep moving without you doing anything?

If you can adjust it, centre it and save a new default flight for FS to load initially.

Otherwise there's really only four possibilities I can think of

1. A/P enabled

2. An axis input affecting the trim position. Check the FS or FSUIPC joystick assignments -- make sure you haven't accidentally assigned an axis to elevator trim.

3. A key, button or switch assigned to trim up/down which is permanently closed/enabled. Check all the assignments you have in FS and in FSUIPC. Make sure your keyboard isn't going wrong, permanently showing a key pressed.

4. You have an add-on/add-in which is doing it, either directly or via FSUIPC. Find it by a process of elimination.

If you go to FSUIPC's Logging options page you can enable logging of both Axis and other control events. Do that then check the log to see what is happening.

Regards

Pete
