jbearnolimits Posted October 7, 2019 Share Posted October 7, 2019 Why didn't anyone tell me about this? Maybe no one knows? So I want to share something about trim in FSX that has REALLY helped me. As you all know it's rather hard to adjust trim in FSX just right. For most of us we have to pull our joystick or yoke to the point we want to trim for and then hit the trim button. BUT in a real plane the yoke has the pressure removed when it's trimmed right. Not so in the sim. We are left to hit the trim button and then let go of the stick. We end up doing this a lot until the plane stays at about the right spot when we let go the last time. But this method is very much guess work and hard to get just right. So I've considered getting feedback yokes, and when I saw the price I tried to make a freaking pulley system to hold the joystick in place (failed). But now I can adjust trim perfectly and AUTOMATICALLY. When I pull the joystick to the point I want to trim for I can let go and it doesn't budge. Then when I want to change pitch I push forward (a little further than normal but not bad) and when I get to the point I want I let go and boom, I'm trimmed again. I suggest holding it in position a few seconds before letting go of the stick though because it takes a second for it to lock the trim in place. So, want to know how I did it? Go into the C drive > users > the admin folder (whatever it's named) > AppData (this folder is a hidden folder so you will have to unhide it) > Roaming > Microsoft > FSX > fsx (open the configuration file in notepad). Once you open it find AutoTrim=False under the [REALISM] heading. Change it to True and save. Now open FSX and try it out! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
