P3d Missions?

Recommended Posts



Not sure if anyone else has experienced this, but I decided to try one of the basic flight missions (there's one where you fly to three balloons in the sky and then return to the airport and land)...


However for something called "basics of flight" (or something similar), I found it almost impossible to fly the little plane!?


I was constantly pulling back on the stick to keep the thing flying level. I ended up having to play around with the trim for 10 minutes just to keep the plane in the air.

While I agree that you would use trim in a normal flight, but when I flew with an instructor, he handled the trim before handing me the controls...


So my question is.... is this really something that should be covered in the most basic mission? Surely the point would be to get you up in the air and enjoying the sim?


I ended up finding it extremely frustrating in the end especially as I had no real world experience of setting the trim correctly (I've only ever seen it done, or in the larger planes you can use autopilot which sets trim for you)....
