in the 4.02 flight model, is it normal to have the nose swing to the right after an amout of pressure is put and then released on the left rudder? and visa-versa?

I don't remember this happening in real flight training. However, laws of physics may apply (eg impact produces temporary forward momentum of equal and opposite reaction - then force backwards)...or it could be a sensitive foot on an insensitive rudder perhaps...(I'm only guessing). Throw the plane around a bit...if the yaw is not modelled properly for that type of aircraft it would probably go into spin easier than other aircraft. If other aircraft do the same thing it could be another bugg in PF.

There have been a number of suggestions put forth to cure the wobble. I tried going out into the woods on a full moon night, found an old tree stump filled with mosquito infested, stagnant water. So I stripped, stood on the stump, swung a dead cat over my head and recited incantations to the gods of the wobble. That seemed to help just about as much as anything else.

Hmmm.. I suspect you used the wrong spell, the one you're using, I believe, is best at curing bad breath, excessive flatulence, pimples, warts and that sort of thing. We're talking about computer software/hardware. Different approach needed; specifically choice of animal and target of ritual motions.

See http://www.catb.org/~esr/jargon/html/W/wave-a-dead-chicken.html to get you started (if you're into computers, it's good for a laugh too) http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Seriously...I had the same troubles, the AMD processor/P4core.dll issue was the culprit. See FluffyDucks posts and links for clarification.

Release the rudder more slowly, it will helphttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif.
