The Grumman Goose ...kangoroo of the sky?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,how come the Grumman Goose is so difficult to trim. A little trim adjust make it pass from 500 fps to 3000 fps (vertical).Is this plane is really that powerfull or the table for that one is all screwed up?Any fix somewhere?I LOVE the plane, but I find it too difficult to trim. I don't have this problem with any other planes.

The sim also has the SAME non-linear response curve for keypresses, so effectively making some aircraft `sensitive` to pitch trim, others `lazy`. Just like in real life.In practice, I also find that the tim rate differs whether you are using a button on a stick or yoke, or a keyboard character. Press, press, press for small changees of trim, Press AND HOLD for faster - it gets faster the longer you hold. Experiment on the ground by sittingin VC, watch the trim wheel while you get used to the rates necessary.The slider in the assignments menu also has an effect - ensure that your trim device has the slider in the middle, not to the right.Hope this helps!Allcott
