Setting STAB TRIM in the PMDG737

Recommended Posts

Guest mruane

HiI need some assistance to correctly set the stab trim for take off in the B737-700 (and the others).The problem is that the stab trim setting in both the VC and the 2D Throttle popup, show a value indcator between 0 and 12. In the VC there is also a popup help window that shows the actual stabiliser trim setting - but the value displayed in the popup window does not match the value that the Stab Trim indicator shows.i.e. When I select a stab trim of say 5 - the Stag Trim Indicator is alongside the number 5, the pop window (in the VC) indicates that I only have a stab trim of 1.3 degrees. So which is correct, the value in the popup help window or the number painted on the side of the trim wheel?Does any of this make sense or would a screen shot help?

Perhaps I can ask this question in a different way.When I set the Stab Trim (in the VC) for take-off to a value of 5 i.e. in the middle of the green zone on the pedestal indicator, the popup help window that appears when you hold the mouse over the Stab Trim indicator shows a Stab Trim value of 1.3 Degrees and not 5. Which of these values are correct - 5 or 1.3?
