Focke-Wulf trim

Hi! Im little bit confused about FW190 trim setting for take off and land. Manual says this: It should be set to +1.5° before takeoff and landing.

However , if i understand right +1.5 means about 70-80 % nose down. If you look at stabilizer section and those markings in it ,it says + means nose down?! 

 

What i´ve found most comfortable to land is 100% nose up before final approach.

I'm confused too. With the text aids enabled the "neutral 0%" position seems to be at a "-0,5 degrees" on the gauge... :/

Agreed, now if i try to land with recommented trim settings 70% nose down i have to pull stick all way back and still its might stall just before touch down. So i use trim by feeling whats suite best for a stable approach

In the real world, Fw190 stabilizer angle is +4~-1 degree.  In the external view of this game, the stabilizer moves between +4~-1 degree ("0" mark should be 0 degree).

But stab angle indicator in the cockpit indicates between +2~-3.

 

I supposed that the indicator is not right. Angle +1.5 is 0% (indicator is -0.5).
