Did my first ride, and the Hawk was well to manage except trimming it.
One tick up, you move up like sailplane hitting a big thermal.
One tick down, your going a dive.
At least i avoided to look at the vario but had my eyes on the horizon.
The spit is more reliable there, you can get a setting where she is very stable.
Any experiances or advices?
One thing about trim, and it's especially prevalent in trimming a fighter like the P40;
The technique you use in trimming the airplane is extremely important so that you're not working against yourself. There is a sequence involved and it's very important you follow it. That sequence is as follows;
1. Nose........PIN the nose where you want it.
2. Power........adjust the power where you want it.
3. Trim.........trim the pressure off the stick.
It's notable concerning #3 that using a desktop simulator controller you can't "feel" the aircraft like you can in actual flight in a real airplane. (Force feedback is NOT the answer to this). So after you have pinned the nose and are holding it steady with the controller, then adjusted the power where you want it, use your trim CAREFULLY and SLOWLY in extremely small and subtle steps to "find" a "sweet spot" where it's easy to maintain the nose position you desire.
It's also notable that in an actual prop fighter, you are trimming all the time with every power, airspeed, and attitude change, especially as fuel is burned and changes the cg.
Hope all this helps a bit.
