Arrow Flight Model Update

One of my pet ‘peeves’ with the Arrow’s Flight Model was the way the elevator trim functioned. Full nose-up trim gave about 80-85KIAS, much too fast for approach. It has been something I have wanted to try and fix for some time. Tonight I had an epiphany as to how to tackle the problem, and after a couple of iterations of my modification I had a workable flight model.

Full nose-up trim now gives me around 62KIAS, and a nice forward trim at 140KIAS (it used to be neutral trim at full cruise speed).

You may even be able to see some nice new HD clouds in the photo; that’s part of a visual ‘update’ I am working on for FS9… more on that to come!
