Help with helicopter function

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, 

I hope someone has exprince with it and can shade some light. 

I rally love the Milviz Bell-407. The only issue that bothers me is the trim. It has a force trim option which is really great but the problem is the trim controls. As the manual saying u simply usr the keyboard elevator up/down keys for trim. It work great but as soon as move my cyclic up or down it goes back to previous position and trim is lost. Does anyone know of its possible even with Fsuipc to adjust a key press that will trim up/down and once releasing the key will define this position as neutral ? So when i will move cyclic again it will go back to this position ? 

Any help will be very appreciated! 

Enjoy the rest of your weekend all !

It isn't the elevator keyboard commands, but elevator Trim commands that must be used. Elevator keyboard commands will always be overridden by the joystick. The Trim commands however, are redirected into our code to adjust the neutral position of the controls.

Flew that copter for over a year, never could get the force trim to work correctly.

Hi Jonathan, 

The thing is that the trim has strange effect. I can trim it and once moving the cyclic a little forward or backward it will push the cyclic full aft or fwd.

Yup, that is the way it works. 😉

I thought it got corrected with the most recent updates. I will see about getting it re-looked at.
