Refuel & TRIM
I have just made my first flights on Justflight-PA28-turbo arrow 4 and I stumble on 2 things:
1 / How to refuel (nothing in the EFB on the refuel)?
2 / How to use these two buttons which according to the doc are used for the TRIM but I did not find any keyboard shortcuts (in french)?
Thank you in advance for your help.
@cirrusflight For refueling, use the MSFS fuel item from the dropdown. Don't know about the trim.
@cirrusflight I don't own the Arrow, so what exactly the manual says about no. 1?
No. 2 is not a button, but a rotating knob. You rotate it clockwise to deflect the rudder to the right (apply right rudder trim) and counterclockwise for left rudder trim. You can use it if you have to hold pedal pressure continuously. Like in climb, when you have to apply some right rudder to eliminate slipping due to left turning tendency of the aircraft.
I won't help you with French, sorry.
@cirrusflight In the real aircraft the button above the ignition switch is the ON/OFF switch for the electric elevator trim switches on the yoke.
Although this button is animated and has a clickspot in the sim, I haven't found that it actually does anything in the sim. The elevator trim buttons on my yoke still work regardless of the position of this switch.
No. 2 in your pic is the rudder trim, for which there are assignments in the control options. In English they are RUDDER TRIM LEFT, RESET RUDDER TRIM and RUDDER TRIM RIGHT.
Although this button is animated and has a clickspot in the sim, I haven't found that it actually does anything in the sim.
Adding to this - this is a limitation of the sim. There is no input for "electric trim up / electric trim down" for example, just "trim up / trim down". In the real aircraft pushing this button would stop the yoke switch from setting your trim (which you might need if the button got stuck on!) so you would need to manually do it with the trim wheel between the seats
A BIG THANK YOU to all four of you.
Your explanations are very clear and will help me progress
