S!

You want to know what true icons are? the kind of aircraft that are so widely recognized even across the world you can stand up just Utter their names out loud , and that anyone in the general vicinity who isn't into aviation/ simulation or what not , will still receive recollection.

Say Spitfire, P51 (or Mustang), F16 (Viper, or Fighting Falcon), etc And these sorts of names will most of the time instantly click among many.

Can you say the same for the I16? No you cant, at least perhaps not unless your in Russia.

Hell even with how iconic the F16 is and how more widespread information on it is within English language, ED nonetheless lists the features that the block will come with, and even with said features listed, People still argue over what valid or not, or wish list features from different blocks.

You just described I-16. Anyone who isn't into aviation know any of those aircraft you name, don't fool yourself, they just don't. Even in Britain most today's kids don't know what a Spitfire is, and Britain and Spitfire is probably the most widely known icon. If you are into aviation and don't know an icon in aviation history as I-16 is you really aren't into aviation.

I wouldn't know squat if it wasn't for flight sims.

@Kev2go Looks like "AutoTrimmer" was added as an option to the gameplay tab in settings this update in beta (or recently). Might want to give it a try and see if it does anything for I-16.

yea it does, but its a general feature that applies to any aircraft.

Should also be noted the auto trim does feel still too stiff, adjusting too instantly, not even the Hornet auto trims in a millisecond.

I love using slight flaps to keep her level but what I really love is when you go full flaps you feel like your flying a WW1 bird.The lift is so strong you can feel it and I always envisioned flaps working like this but this is first sim that made that impression for me.

even in small GA planes irl flaps are quite the kick in the rear when you lower them. You can really feel it. But visually it can be hard to notice.

& Russia doesn't count right ?
Only English speaking people count.

When operation Barbarossa started the Russians had 1,635 I-16 fighting against the Emils.

Easy solution for weak-wristed pilots of DCS I-16: use a CH stick. It has physical "trim" wheels for pitch and roll. Problem solved.

As far as F/A-18s flying hands off - Blue Angels add some forward trim when performing to take up the slack in the controls and give them a better "feel" for the jet. Also they don't wear g-suits, so their arms don't move when the bladders inflate under G.

I don't have the I-16 module (yet) but it sound like fun (the IL-2 BoX I-16 is a hoot!), trim or no trim. And it seems to me, if it is pitching down, just go faster! Eventually you should get to the trim speed for your configuration and weight. Every plane I have flown IRL reacts the same: go faster than trim speed, it will nose up, go slower than trim speed, it will nose down. They are built that way!

Cheers,

Kirk

......these aircraft are based on real aircraft. Your first stop should be wikipedia or some aviation history websites to give you an idea what the aircraft is like. THEN you go to YouTube to see what kind of bugs it has. A Youtube review first presumes the Youtuber isn't an ignorant jackass and/or already did the footwork, neither of which can be relied on.
