So i started to suspect.....

Make it pain having to constantly compensate the stick and never taking hands off because itl just nose dive straight down.

IF so thats a real dealbreaker

AFAIR the real plane had no trim controls whatsoever.

The design doc for the I-16:
  • Engine
  • Wings
  • Some guns
  • (only capitalist dogs need this)
  • (only capitalist dogs need this)
  • (only capitalist dogs need this)
  • (only capitalist dogs need this)
  • (only capitalist dogs need this)
  • At least four more levers than capitalist planes
  • Compass heating

Gotta get your priorities right, tovarish. The I-16 is a very hands on little repurposed lawnmower, you gotta love it for that

Yup, I16 did not have trims.
This is proper pre-war flying. Seat-of-pants and hands-on 100%.

I spent almost 5 hours in this bird last night and found that if you're wanting to fly straight and level you need only dial in the correct amount of flaps for a given power setting to keep the VSI needle perfectly on 0. Not having rudder or aileron trim does, however, mean that you have to keep your hand on the stick at all times to prevent uncommanded roll. If you're going to deploy flaps to compensate for lack of elevator trim don't forget to add power during your turns though!

I like the sound of this! My floor mounted stick will really come into its own! Knees to hold stick still while hands off. Just like a real plane!
