Hi,
Yes. Same trick as I used on my just released hydrofoil.
You name ALL the model "trim", including Memory, GEO LODs etc and use animation code like below to "level" the whole addon.
Quote
         class Leveling1
            {
            type="rotationX";
            source = "horizondive";
            selection="trim";
            axis="osatrim";
            memory = 1;
            minValue = -1;
            maxValue = 1;
            angle0="rad 57.3";
            angle1="rad -57.3";
            };
The axis goes around the middle somewhere.
You can use similar code to level the left-right back as well. (Use source = "horizonBank" and another axis)
Looking forward to the first ArmA airship ;)
