Can anyone make the aileron trim work with the TB 10 and 20.
I have keys set for this in the config setting but it does not make any difference when used to stop the slight bank to the left.
I have to move the stick to the right, all other aircraft do not have this problem.

Full tanks are balanced and passenger weight is the same.

Did anyone solve this?  Is the aileron trim non-functional on these aircraft?
I would expect a little trim to counter the torque effect of the propeller.

The aileron trim is non-functional on these aircraft, as per the real aircraft. Looking at pics of the real thing there are trimming tabs on the ailerons, but these are fixed and will have been manually set in position as a result of initial test flights.

Martyn's asked me to have a look at the engine at some point regarding another (minor) issue - as and when that happens, I'll have a look at either re-enabling the trim or seeing how I could emulate the fixed trim tab situation. Meanwhile, rudder trim should help.

Hi.  Rudder trim of 8% right seems to make the roll stable.
Cheers!
