Auto trim

This results in doubling the correction you made.
Jim, it sounds to me like both the Graupner and XPS auto trims are more involved to use than the Ace. All I have to do is just fly straight and level and then tap the auto trim button, simple and easy. I have the speed that the auto trim works set on the low side because most of the time I need very trim applied to the plane. I believe that I will be able to use the auto trim on the 3216 with a little practice though. I may even like the way the 3216 works better after I use it, I am looking forward to trying it. Keep after it, you will get there......
