A very good day,

I need help regarding how can I fine tune the aircraft behavior. I''m familiar with P3D [flight tuning] section but on XP 11 I can't find this section and don't know how to adjust certain sections.

Would be possible for a guidance (education) as to where do I have to go to adjust the values and the correct section names for

[flight_tuning]
cruise_lift_scalar     = 1.0
parasite_drag_scalar   = 1.0
induced_drag_scalar    = 1.0
elevator_effectiveness = 1.0
aileron_effectiveness  = 1.0
rudder_effectiveness   = 1.0
pitch_stability        = 1
roll_stability         = 2
yaw_stability          = 3
elevator_trim_effectiveness = 1
aileron_trim_effectiveness  = 1.0
rudder_trim_effectiveness   = 1.0

 To be honest this is an issue for me that is preventing changing over to XP11, some airplanes characteristics (IMHO) need to be adjusted.

Thank you!

Some of them can be changed by opening the aircraft in plane-maker.

Parasite_drag_scalar -> change fuselage Cd0.

Cruise_lift_scalar -> change the angle of incidence of main wings.

Elevator/aileron/rudder_effectiveness -> change the max deflection or chord of the respective control surface

Trim_effectiveness -> change the trim values in the "trim" section in plane-maker.

Don't have access to x-plane right now, but you should be able to find the relevant entries if you have a look at plane-maker.

Thank you Murmur, much appreciated, I'll give it a try.

Is anybody else with more suggestions on this topic.

Thank you!
