left turn tendency

nutmeg Guest

Hi folks. I've got a few planes I installed which I hardly ever use as they all have a severe tendency to turn left (on the asphalt) and bank left once in the air. Even with power off and straight and level flight. I can correct it with rudder on ground and aileron in flight, but it's *way* too much, especially in a power-off glide.

Seems to be much more than p-factor. Doesn't happen in any of my original FS9 planes, or most of my downloaded planes.

Is there a specific line or lines in the respective aircraft.cfg files I can check and modify to fix this?

Thanks. 30 hours toward ppl!
Tom

prop planes do go left, but it shouldnt be too bad. i have a lot of problems with planes going severly left on the runway too - but thats due to the feedback in my joystick. such things can be changed in the aircraft config under feedback settings i think it's titled.

For some reason my stick needs to have the null zone of the rudder increased or it will cause the plane to pull left on the ground and turn to the left in the air. You can go to settings in the Sim and increase the null zone and see if that helps.

I'm not certain about the terminology. I have the old MS Sidewinder.
Take the default Cessna and take off with no weather. Normally, if the throttle is applied gradually, I don't have to do anything, no pulling off the centreline.
At other times under exactly the same conditions, the a/c pulls left on the rwy.
It took me a while to figure out. The stick, without actually applying or affecting the rudder has a little bit of 'play' in it's neutral position. A little bit like the stearing wheel in your car.
Prior to t/o I just have to twist the stick gently to the right as far as it goes - leave it alone and under the conditions described above, she'll go straight like an arrow.
Note: This also applies to all other a/c - including the heavies.

That is what I use and the fix for that is as I described in the earlier post. Go to settings and increase the null zone for the rudder.

Be assured I read the post. That's why I said 'not sure about the terminology' with you talking about "Null Zone" and all.
I'll try you're trick though when I can gather up the courage... Actually, you really got me curious now 🤔
Thanks

No problem, I know how irritating that little problem is. I just didn't know others were having the same problem with the stick that I was. Over all it's a good controller and I have no complaints with it................now.

I don't like this part. Fear I admit, I'm ill prepared. Should I start to work on a contingency plan???

No, I just meant since I had made those adjustments in the settings I have no complaints with the controller. I'm quite happy with it.

I have been getting the same problem lately in the leerjet and another twin engine aircraft, and i tried everything before i realised what was happening with me.

After a bit of flying, or at some random time, (like once every few hours it does this) i noticed on flying or taxing it kept trying to turn to the side, and when i looked at the throttle, as i moved the throttle forward it was only throttling the left engine.

Not sure why it does this, am i pressing a key or something that activates this or? Ive only noticed it in multiplayer, and all i can think of is ive accidently pressed a key when trying to write in the chat box, and the chat box isnt selected.
