Is the elevator trim response a little too sensitive? I thought that it took alot to change trim a few degrees? I hit the elevator trim a few times and the nose really changes alot. Anyone else see this?

~S!, Mike, I never noticed the Trim repsonse to be overly so in the 109's. Granted I don't fly 'em as much as others, but think they handle reasonably well. ( not meant as a postive or negative on the FM nor any comment as to accuracy)

The trim on the Real machine changed the Horizontal Stab's angle of incidence, via a jack screw actuator. Very powerful and positive to any change in setting. I don't feel that type of response is represented presently tho.

All the Best:

thanks. I read another thread that said that in real life, it took a lot of turns of the wheel to effect trim changes. Thought it could have been a bug
