*HELP* with CaptainSim 757 Stabiliser Trim

Recommended Posts

Hi,
I just bought the CS757-200PW & -200RR in the sale and I’ve done a couple of Flights on it. However, I have found that the stabiliser trim doesn’t work. I click to drag it and it springs back to the default position and when I press the button on my yoke to move it, nothing happens. Note that no changes have been made in the control settings as it works perfectly fine on my other aircraft. One takeoff roll, I get a Master warning and blaring alarm warning me that the Stabiliser trim isn’t set - yet I can’t set it. 

Also, how do I calculate the amount of pitch I need?

Thanks, TrainNutter

 

 P.S. I posted this on the CaptainSim Forums a day or 2 ago and I’ve had no response (yet newer posts have had responses).

Are you waiting until after pressurizing the hydraulics to try and set the trim?

The trim has forever been a problem on this plane for me. The FMS calculated value and the value from the table in the manual both result in dangerously unstable trim setting at takeoff for me. It does however function for me. Make sure hydraulics are pressured.

You need to right-click on the trim in the FMS to capture the trim value. I have trim set on my saitek yoke using the flip-switch on the left-hand-side.

Yeah I have the same thing set on my Saitek Yoke. And thank you! I will try now

Yeah I have the same issue but all the hydraulics systsms are powered (As in no orange lights and no warnings for it not being pressured)

right click doesn't work. It just does nothing. Can't even set it in-flight

You did load the flightplan and have the SID and takeoff speeds set before rightclicking on the c/g?

The other issue I'm personally having with this aircraft is that I'm noticing the retrofit panel TCAS doesn't appear to work.  Anybody else?

In the livery manager panel you can install it. Manual talks about it.  Just check the box and done
