Yeah, it's easy to get sea sick :-)I can trim it out if I trim a fair way forward so that the trim marker is just on the start of the top of the green band. Becomes rock stead in climb, cruise and decent. For me anyway!Steven.

Steven-Many users have reported that if using the REGISTERED version of FSUIPC- you need to go into FSUIPC and uncheck "Reverse Sensing" for the rudder/elevators or you may experience such pitching...

Robert, Thats cool, I don't have that checked but thats OK because as I say, trimming it out works fine for me. The guy with the problem should look at both settings I guess.Steven.

1. Do not leave FS2k4 when flying. When switching back the aircraft can have pitch problems.2. Do not try to trim manually when AP is connected.When the nose is pitching up and down, disengage AP and engage it again. This helps for me

Steven,You did not by any chance edit the aircraft.cfg weight & balance section using e.g. your favorite VA's aircraft loader ?Cheers,Vangelis
