Adjustment of sensitivity elevator trim knobs

Recommended Posts

Q: Is it possible to adjust the sensitivy of the elevator trim (knobs) throu FSUIPC 3.999z8 and where to find instructions?


Problem: I'm using a MS Sidewinder joystick with FS2004 and Eaglesoft Citation X V2. Previously I could make very small adjustments in the elevator trim with buttons 3 (-) and 4 (+).

               After a clean install of windows and FS software the adjustments have changed and are just too big. Giving 2 clicks 'elevator down' makes the aircraft dive down like a stone.


Software: MS Fs2004, FSUIPC 3.999z8 (reg), Eaglesoft Citation X V2,

One of the ways I tune my trims is adjusting the trim setting in the aircraft.cfg file

By default it is set to 1.0 changing it to .8 is a 20% reduction. I have an aircraft where the setting is at .55
