I use a slider on the Warthog throttle and it too was too hard to use to start off with.
What you need to do is try using your analog wheel but set the “curves” for that wheel in the settings to adjust the sensitivity. I’m not near my MSFS computer so I can’t give more detailed instructions than that.
You will just need to play around with sensitivity until you get it where you like it.
Personally, I think the devs should consider adding an “auto-trim” button, at least for elevator trim. It is totally unrealistic, but trimming a real aircraft is really easy and takes a second or two. Our sticks don’t have back-pressure to release so it isn’t realistic anyway. I’ll add this to the wishlist forum.
The obvious problem with simming is that with non-force-feedback yokes, etc, there IS NO pressure on the yoke/stick to “feel”, thus complicating setting trim.
The only way left to do it is to adjust trim (assuming elevator trim) until the VSI zeros. Leave power constant and set trim to get the VSI at zero and you’re done. You can use the same technique for aileron trim using the turn and bank indicator. Trim for no bank - done.
That’s always the problem with flight sims - no pressure felt in the controls means you can’t use pressure to trim. It is, what it is.
Yeah, that is my point.
Even with that I do a lot of hunting which I don’t do in a aircraft. I have a curve that is working ok for me now so I know it is doable. However even with sensitivity turned way down I have to still hunt by moving my slider a fraction of a mm. What I have is OK, but it is still more annoying than reality.
But the other point is not everyone has an analog axis they can use. A lot of people are trying to use trim up/down buttons. That is often just awful. Many times you want to trim half a step but can’t or if the trim up/down is very fine, then it takes an age to get it where it needs to be.
I think my solution makes it better for everyone, regardless of controller.
Yes. They are assigned to Trim up and Trim down. I put them to the HAT in the middle (called POV up, down etc) and seems to work, though it is a bit slow. The wheel just doesnt want to work. Not sure why.
I’m having trim issues and getting frustrated. A few times I’ve even adjusted my trim and why is it changing my throttle also? I’m constantly fighting the trim and have been unable to achieve level flight without having to hold elevator input.
I have buttons assigned to elevator trim up and elevator trim down. Response is buggy. Sometimes pressing them does nothing. Other times, there’s lag, and then…BOOM! Off into outer space. It’s worse on some planes than others, but the issue seems universally present.
