Maybe a problem with my joystick??????????

Hey,
When I'm taking off ( with a joystick) my plane keeps on turning in different directions. When I look on the turn coordinator, the little ball is taking trips from left to right, and the model plane is doing the same. THis results in my plane doing curves on the runway to take off, which is surely scary and very uncomfortable for the passengers ( I haven't asked them yet 😀 ).
I was wondering if anyone was having the same problem and how I could solve it.
Thanks

It sounds more like you have your autopilot is engaged. You want it disengaged for takeoff. Then you can activate it wehn you are 1,000 AGL. Many people have had the same problem. You may also want to check your trimming. 😞: Hope that helps. Come back if that doesn't solve your problem.

f15, I have a force feedback wing man.
My pilot, I am sure I don't have the autopilot engaged. But I'll go and check anyways.
Thanks for the replies

Try pressing 5 on the numpad with the numlock off This will center your controls. and then when you are off the ground you can turn auto rudder on. I guess you could try reinstallong your joystick. 😕

Ok, thanks for that.
I don't think I'm going to use auto rudder though, that would be to easy.
