Trimming, and reving in the Gazelle...

I just got training in my new Gazelle module.

 

I had seen before videos like this:

 

 

showing some weird ( IMO ) behaviour, but yesterday after completing the startup training mission I decided to lift off by pulling the collective slowly until the Gazelle lifts from ground and enters IGE, and then, without ANY cyclic or anti-torque correction, I climbed all the way up this way, rolling around the vertical axis, with no drift or drag hint or displacement requiring cyclic corrections ...

 

I repeated with the AP and it's three channels disengaged, and the same is possible :-/

 

Also, the trim options for "left wing down..." and pitch seem swapped ? I programmed a button for left wing down and the heli rolls right, another one for nose down, and the heli pitches up ?

Maybe this will help?

I don't own this module, just remember reading about a solved similar issue.

Just tested it - was the FFB enabled in the Game Options, when I do not have one !

 

But that total lack of need to compensate for collective adjustments, even with SAS and trim OFF, as soon as we get away from near stationary still puzzles me :-/

 

Is the real Gazelle that "easy" to cope with when collective is lowered / pulled ( even abruptly ) without requiring any sort of anti-torque ( rudder ) input ?

 

To make sure it wasn't the SAS, I turned of the AP and all of the three SAS channels as well as the mag trim, but still no need for rudder input with collective adjustments if I have a fwd movement with just a médium speed.
