Im not sure if this has been mentioned before, or is it just me experiencing this.
Upon close inspection, I noticed that the elevator trim tabs on default (and some add-on) aircraft in FSX animates to the wrong direction (moves for a nose-down when you adjust for nose-up, and vice versa).
Correct me if I'm wrong: Trim tabs move to the same direction as the main elevators do - eg. if you trim for nose-up, the tabs shud move the same direction (up) as the elevator does if you pull the stick/yoke for nose up?
This isn't the case for me... instead, the trim tabs animate to the opposite direction of my controls (eg. if i trim nose-up, the animation does a 'nose-down' movement, and vice versa). There is an exception though, and that is the Aerosoft Beaver X add-on which animates correctly. The rest of my GA aircraft, be it default or add-on animates wrongly. But the planes does respond to the correct control, only the animation is the opposite way.
Am I the only one noticing this, or is it a known FSX "bug"? Just in case you haven't notice this already, try this - on the ground, switch to Spot or Locked SPot view, pan around to have a clear view of the trim tabs, and zoom in as close as you can. Make big adjustments of the trim, and watch the trim tabs animate.
Your thoughts are most welcome.
