Firstly, it's not unusual to come across specific aircraft behaviors that might seem out of the ordinary, especially with third-party add-ons. Let's dive into some potential causes and solutions for the B737MAX turning issue you've mentioned.

1. Calibration Issues: Always start with the basics. Check if your joystick or yoke is correctly calibrated. It's not uncommon for calibration drifts to occur, leading to unexpected behaviors.
Solution: Navigate to the control settings in MSFS 2020 and recalibrate your control device. Ensure all axes respond as they should.

2. Aircraft Configuration: Sometimes, the aircraft's weight distribution or trim can impact its handling.
Solution: Check the weight, balance, and trim settings before your flight. Ensure everything is set for a balanced flight.

3. Flight Model Realism: MSFS 2020 allows users to toggle the level of flight realism.
Solution: Head to the options menu, under "General" and then "Flight Model". Ensure it's set to "Modern" for the most realistic flight dynamics.

4. Check for Updates: If it's a third-party add-on, the developers might have released updates to address various issues.
Solution: Visit the official website or platform where you obtained the B737MAX model to see if there's an updated version.

5. Potential Conflicts: Other add-ons or mods might conflict with the particular aircraft's behavior.
Solution: Try disabling other add-ons temporarily to see if the issue persists. If the issue disappears, it's a matter of identifying the conflicting add-on.

6. Reinstallation: Sometimes, the simplest solution is a fresh start.
Solution: Consider uninstalling and reinstalling the B737MAX model.

If none of these solutions resolve your issue, it might be helpful to provide more detailed information. For example, does this behavior occur at all altitudes and airspeeds? Does it happen only when using autopilot? The more specifics you can offer, the easier it will be for the community to pinpoint potential solutions.

Remember, flight simming is all about trial and error, and sometimes a bit of troubleshooting can enhance the overall experience. Safe flying!
