    That's REALLY weird, but what is the aileron deflection? A left bank usually implies left aileron (or maybe near neutral), and left rudder with it should be turning the aircraft to the left. There...

    In FSX the joystick responses are part of the sim settings, not part of the joystick and its software. So I'd expect you'd have to set responses separately in the new sim and each sim should keep its...

    That's aircraft dependent, Charlie. With a Cessna or a Bonanza the normal takeoff is without flaps. Jet airliners may need flaps, but a J-3 Cub doesn't even have any flaps.

    But if one is training,...

    At what airport? Some airports don't have built-in parking spots (especially military or very small fields). If there's no AI traffic at the airport it might not have parking spots either.

    One other reason occurs to me. While it doesn't account for all failures to answer, this sim is so new that sometimes no one knows the answer, especially with all the weird happenings after an update.

    That's normal operation. The AP in FSX makes heavy use of the elevator trim, so that you effectively are fighting the AP if you try to adjust the trim and it WILL fight back.

    In real life, if there's not a glide slope on both radios, it'll normally be the number one NAV that has the glide slope on it. Not many Cubs have that capability, though there are a few.

    The ILS for 01L is 108.9, 19L is 110.3, 19R is 108.5, and 01R is 111.95 but 01R is a LOC, that is, localizer only approach. You might check what freq(s) you were using.

    Are you sure it's an ILS? There are many places that have localizer-only approaches, so As James said the what/where/freqs might help to answer this.
