hello,
why is it that i continuosly lose 10m height when i switch to automatic pilot or using stabilizer while i'm at bomber station and what should i do to stop this?
i have tried trim and elevator but as soon as i go back to automatic i start dropping again.

dropping combat flaps and increasing the power a little should help.

i think we should whine for this in ORR. i mean it should be possible, even if it requires going up and down abit..

It works ok for me...

In the B-25 I set level stabilizer. It descends, but a little elevator trim fixes it.

380km/h, and trim about 3/4 back.

Here's a track. I even managed to hit the target. (PF addon)

I remember reading in the manual that the level stabilizer 'puts the aircraft into a shallow dive', so I think it is designed to do it. I'm not sure of the reason though; not only does it make your altitude setting innaccurate, your speed increases a little too.
No idea if you can trim the stabilizer.

Hi Guys

My settings for B25

At a speed of around 310 kmph in level flight @ 3000m.

Cut throttle to 70%, drop combat flaps and engage level stab...

Now watch your VSI gauge and adjust throttle to keep at zero

with 6x 500 lb and 50% fuel my set up seems to stabilse at 290kmph, 3000m ASL on 72% throttle (no wind)

In a test the a/c held this stable condition for 30 mins no problem.

Tip........ make course adjustments using rudder trim

Full simple and complex tutorial's to be released soon
