Hello,i am a newbie here,and if possible,i would like to post a couple of questions considering the game,any and all advices from experts will be very welcome.
-With regards to trimming,i have realised that it can be used to make a plane fly at a certain altitude or direction without having to correct all the time,but from reading the posts here it seems that it also has appliances in combat.It would be nice if someone would clarify that.
-Is there any site with information on combat maneuvers(loops and such),and info how to perform them in game?
-Considering the turning times discussed widely in this forum,globally two terms show up.Sustained and instantenuous turn times.The way i understood it,sustained
turns are the turns which must finish on the same altitude and speed as when started,and instantenuous is one in which sole purpose is very fast turning without regards to speed/height.If this is not correct,would someone care to explain?
And some stuff related to flight models:
-What is the status of Ta152 flight model in the current patch(401 and 401m),i am most interested in high alt performance and turning times(theoretically it should be the best turner of 190 family and on par with the best turning 109`s).
-Also it would be nice to find out turn times for ki84 family in order to compare them with other planes.

With regard to trim:

Your joystick control inputs in this game are not directly linked to the aircraft controls. They control how much force the pilot is applying to the control column.

At high speed the aerodynamic resistance to control movement is higher than the pilot can counter and consequently maximum control deflection is not achievable. Trim adds some aerodynamic input to the pilot's strength, allowing greater control input at high speed than is possible with pilot strength alone. This was also true in the real aircraft, particularly for pulling out of dives near the aircraft's Vne (maximum survivable airspeed).
