Ahhh...I was simply pointing to Yo-Yo's comment about it taking an insane amount of down pressure on the stick ("...very strong nose-up moment must be counteracted with absolutely crazy forward pressure..."). I take that statement to mean that just about full down pressure is required just to maintain level flight. And pitch trim only being available for a portion of that means that you could never trim it for level flight in that situation. I wasn't referring to any specific level.

If I didn’t know it was a dampener would’ve taken me longer to find the difference
Ummm... if the beeper isn't sounding nonstop, Nadia isn't nagging, the damper pushbutton isn't out, the round red light just to the left of the HUD frame isn't flashing, and the warning on the warning panel isn't bright red, then you haven't turned off the damper. Which might be why you haven't nticed a difference.

Left ALT and 1 pressed simultaneously for 3+ seconds!

LAlt-1 turns the damper back on. LAlt-9 for 3+ seconds turns it off. LAlt-9 is the reset button.
