HAT Switch trim sensitivity on MS FFB2

Hello again. Just hoping for some quick advice, and to find out if this is an adjustable parameter. I dumped my G940 and got a Microsoft FFB2. I love it. I've assigned up/down trim to the HAT switch and I noticed that it "repeats" rather quickly, with only a slight tap on the hat. Is it possible to ...

Very good work. I understand, though, that this will not work when using trim wheels to change trim?

Setup advice for G940

I've been happily flying with my G940 and FSForce for a couple months now, but I'm really looking to squeeze out some additional performance to make things more enjoyable. 1) The trim wheel for elevator trim is a little jumpy in FSForce. It appears to move smoothly on the Game Controllers screen. Wh...

I kinda see what you're explaining. I guess I assumed that trimming didn't really move the logical center, only decreased the amount of "pushback" the FFB gears provided (similar to how you perceive relieved pressure on a real aircraft's control yoke when trimming). Anyway, the nullzone increase wor...

Thanks Russ. I adjusted the nullzone and now have it set so that the aircraft will fly straight and level, properly trimmed, hands off. It was a lot of fun flying last night with this configuration. Of course there's always a catch. It took setting the null zone to 65% before achieving this optimum ...

Thanks Russ. I've played with this a bit and it has helped tremendously. Maybe you could offer a couple more pointers for me to iron out 2 remaining nags I have... I think my elevator trim wheel is a little touchy. This may require me to adjust my trimming technique, but I was wondering if you had a...

Hey Russ, This is great info but I may not be smart enough to hone this calibration in on my own. First, you say the spring effect strength should be less than 100%. About how much less? Second, on adjusting the response curves. You say to start at 5% force around the stall speed of the aircraft, in...
