I was having problems with manual flight in the C-46 as the aircraft kept rolling to the right and I wasn't able to trim for level flightl.Checking the aircraft CFG against other aircraft it looks as if the longitudnal and lateral coordinates for the pilots have been mixed up.

The original CFG has the pilots at

station_load.0= 170, -2.000, 18.500, 1.800
station_load.1= 170, 2.000, 18.500, 1.800

I changed this to

station_load.0= 170, 18.500,-2.000, 1.800
station_load.1= 170, 18.500, 2.000, 1.800

The roll to the right has now stopped and the aircraft seems more stable in flight.I thought I'd post this here for Just Flight to check .

Thanks. Have modified the aircraft.cfg as You have suggested and... yes, that is now the right way.
