Set the C172 rudder trim tab

Among the other changes of this update, if you fly the C172 you’ll find a nifty new feat.

Over the years, we received feedback from the user about the improved P-Factor of the Cessna SkyHawk in X-Plane. Many of you fly a C172R/SP in real life and while some agreed on the P-Factor we added in cruise, others did not.

The different feedback we get from pilots is related to the different trim tab settings on the planes they fly. That is, some mechanics set the trim tab to keep the ball centered in cruise while others do not.

Now you can set your trim tab the way you like it. Just open the maintenance window and go to the CONTROLS tab, then choose the setting you like more.
