I’m using the Zibo mod with X-Plane’s 737 to try out a new simulator. I’ve used Stefan’s PMDG 737 profile which seems to work quite well with the exception of the elevator. In cruise, at about 2.5 degrees pitch up in the aircraft and with autopilot on, the yoke is at pitch position -4301. Trim reads about the same.
This is probably because the PMDG profile was designed specifically for that aircraft but I can’t see what I need to change. Could someone please help me?

This is not a problem
Ignore the number -4301 is internal units… just ignore

Thanks for the speedy response. I failed to mention that the yoke is almost fully forward with this value – despite trim being correctly set in the aircraft. I have to set the trim to around 10 units to get the yoke central. With the PMDG aircraft, adjusting the stab trim doesn’t move the yoke in the same way it does in X-Plane.
Is there anything I can do to get X-Plane’s 737 to behave in the same way to the PMDG one please?

Have you read the section https://cls2sim.brunner-innovation.swiss/TrimFunctionality.htm
You also can try to reduce Movement % in Trim Tab

Yes I have – and I’ve made the relevant adjustments to the Aircraft files as per the instructions.
Have you loaded up X-Plane’s 737 and tried this for yourself? That way you’d understand what I’m saying. The aircraft also veers off to the right quite strongly…which it doesn’t do with a USB joystick. Most odd.

We can not reproduce your problem
Maybe you send us your profil or upload it to the Profil Cloud for test

Were you able to come up with a profile that works good with the Zibo 737?
I would be very interested in hearing about that since I’m trying the same thing myself.
My main concern so far is that the aircraft nose tends to drop when I’m disconnecting the AP on final.
Not sure at this time if it’s caused by how the aircraft model works where the aircraft isn’t properly trimmed by the time the AP is disconnected or if I maybe need to find a way to make the yoke a bit less sensitive along the pitch axis or maybe add a deadzone at the center of the pitch axis.
Will continue to play around with it but any input or tips on how to best setup the CLS-E yoke for this aircraft in XP11 would be highly appreciated.07/03/2018 at 10:09 #765
Apologies for the delayed response. Autopilot is disabled on the profile I use, because it really did some very strange things with the Zibo 737. Otherwise, I just created a blank profile and copied all of the force settings across from Stefan’s PMDG profile. Works fine. Would be nice to get autopilot working though.

Fact is things are now working really good I think using the Zibo mod.
Thanks anyway!07/03/2018 at 10:18 #767
Oh OK – what changes did you make to get it all working? Is your profile published? If so, I’ll download it and take a look.
Ady07/03/2018 at 10:22 #768
As I recall it I ended up using my already published profile for the NGX without having to modify it.
The issue I had with the nose dropping was more likely caused by how the Zibo mod works rather than a problem with the yoke or CLS2Sim.07/04/2018 at 15:20 #788
As I know you use the Zibo 737 with the Brunner yoke, I wonder if you could please help me. I can’t get rid of the crosshair on the screen when using this particular aircraft. When using the A320, or my trusty Cessna, no problems.
Have you experienced this and, if so, what did you do please?
Ady07/04/2018 at 15:39 #789
Strange how you only get it with the Zibo since that shouldn’t be aircraft specific.
Anyway, check this out.07/04/2018 at 15:53 #790
Perfect, thank you. I had done the fake calibration of vJoy but mapping pitch and roll did the trick 🙂07/04/2018 at 21:12 #792
That’s great news!
