MD-11 Elevator Trim

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased the PMDG MD-11. Absolutely everything works fine except the elevator trim. It will not respond the either joystick or keyboard commands. I have many addons aircrafts and I never had this problem before. I made sure engines were running and autopilot was off. Before reinstalling the aircraft or trying to create new keyboard commands via FSUIPC I thought I would post about to see if anyone else ever had a similar problems.

Cheers...Claude.

Have you looked at the system display to see if the trim is actually not changing? Also, keep in mind that there is some degree of automatic trim due to LSAS which could effect the experience of trimming the aircraft.

Thank you for the reply. I have got it worked out now... I was expecting the trim handle to move and stay in a different position which it did not. But now I can see the stab value changing in the engine display !!!

I'm glad you figured everything out. The trim handle is indeed a bit of an oddity compared to a trim wheel. It's the same on the DC-9 and all of its derivatives as well.

 

The MD-11 is an excellent aircraft, though, and one that I still enjoy despite the newer releases.

 

Regards,

Jon
