Level stabilizer
« on: November 25, 2019, 08:19:49 AM »

Is the level stabilizer not supposed to work in some planes? I tried it with Fairey Albacore 1940 and the plane veers slightly to the left every time, even though it initially holds the altitude.

Is your B.A.T. updated to current 3.7.2 ?

Level stab allows rudder trim (in order to adjust bomber approach for instance), so if your rudder isn't trimmed correctly, your plane will veer to either side.

Some planes do not have rudder trim for pilots (many single engine fighters)
But most come with a preset trim to counter the engine torque, which you cannot influence. This leads to a veer that you have to correct now and again when flying with stab.

stab only holds the altitude, it does not hold course automatically.

I see, thank you! Correcting the rudder helped.
