Well,

I guess he did it to come down for landing. But it's not really required to idle - simply reducing power to 0 boost will do the trick I guess...

I have been flying the Spitfire for about six months and have always had a slight right roll in flight. I just trim it out with a little rudder - which is not aerodynamically ideal, as the aircraft is "crabbing" a tiny bit as you can see by the ball.

Are you using rudder trim to Starboard for takeoff ? If so, you'll have to "undo" it for cruise.

Don't use rudder - use rudder trim instead because although still a bit abrupt in this DCS Spitfire, it is certainly a finner adjustment.
