When I save a position within fsx-se, it loads up fine as it was. One thing that seems odd is that the message along the top "GPS changed updating HSI Source" stays there until I turn on then off the battery, even if I have not charged the GPS. I'm using the GTN's.

I am finding that the aircraft gradually banks to the left, fuel tanks are showing the same amount in each tank, rudder trim has not moved. If heading hold is on with autopilot it levels out without doing it, which is normal.
I must be doing something wrong here, joysticks are calibrated ok and this does not happen with anything else.

Any suggestions to try.

I think that the banking is the old FS problem of over-sensitivity to weight - using real figures for coefficients and damping appears to exacerbate the problem so I'm looking at rebuilding the weight and balance section with the payload items set more centrally rather than in their exact positions. Meantime, try adding a passenger in the front seat (170lb) and see if that fixes it for you.

Cheers,
Paul.

Tried that, no difference.
Now the damn thing is going to the right, disconnced joystick to make sure it wasn't that, again no difference

Bit of a pain as the rest of it is so good

Pitch trim is way to sensitive which is another thing, one tap of the button/key and its to fast to respond.

Will put it away until these things are fixed I think....

Regarding the GTN and message, please make sure that you have the latest version of the GTN (v1.20) and the Garmin trainer software installed.

I too am unhappy with the flight dynamics. Take off takes too long, then the aircraft tends to lurch into the sky. It is generally jittery in flight and has a tendency to bank to the left.
My controllers are calibrated and currently work fine with other similar aircraft from Flight 1, Aerosoft and A2A. As a result, I have stopped using it.

Otherwise I do like the plane!
