I've un-mapped the roll axis from my trim hat for the time being.

I rarely/never use the autopilot so I don't have to worry about it ruining my mojo when I resume flying, and so far the only time I've used the roll trim is because I accidentally banged it while dialing in some pitch.

Just to chime in, I find trim is indeed too sensitive (roll)

Now matter how I try I can not get it right with my stick, or only for the briefest moments.

The trim sensitivity issues have been reported. Regarding the Stick moving in the video this is because in the MIG29 (unlike in western types) the Damping system input is also fed direct back to the pilot. This is discussed in this fascinating interview with Luftwaffe MIG29 test pilot:

Thanks a lot, because this currently inhibits my time with the MiG 29 greatly.


The only workaround for me was indeed to take trim from the usual mapping and instead create a new one with a modifier key. It also helps to have the key for reset "trim" ready.

Perhaps its just me but the trim seems to greatly improved on in the last update.
Feels as if I'm able to make finer adjustments in both pitch and roll.
Autopilot seems to find centre on roll axis at last now too.

I was about to post this interview as well. Really good insights into flying the 29 can be gleaned here.

One interesting part is here, its about stick and its "correct" usage
