I have owned the IL2 series for 2 years now & have always flown with stalls/spins off & gyroscopic effects off (as well as a few others)
I am now trying these settings, I am finding that when I use the rudder you get a "sway effect", the nose of the plane bucks all over the place. Now is this the "norm" lots of people complained about "the wobbles" is what I am experiencing that syndrome or not. I am campaigning in the P63C.

When I play with these effects off rudder control is a lot easier. I fly using a basic thrustmaster stick & use my keyboard for rudder control.

When you use the keyboard as rudder you always use 100% rudder input when you hit the key.
If you use a twist stick or even better rudder pedals you don't wobble so much.

As a temporary solution u can set the sensitivity of the rudder down in the ingame settings by , for example, set the last slider to 70% and the rest in an even scale down to Zero or close.

Most sticks are too sensitive anyway so everybody should atleast dampen the movement with the filtering slider (how much differ with stick).
I would suggest to filter atleast to half the slider for the rudder.

Well, my suggestion. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Whatever you do, STOP flying with spins and stalls off. It's physics, it's gravity... you can't just "ignore" those effects. Don't touch that toggle again! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

That being said, that's why you have flight controls on the plane to counteract those effects and to make the plane go where you want it to.

Two years???? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/crackwhip.gif Get a stick with rudder control.....

And stop flying with flight parameters toned down.... you develope badhabits that way... now you will have to work a unlearning the stuff you learned over the past two years.

Nothing wrong with twisty stick
not everyone can afford, or use pedals because of bad knees or ankles, missing limbs or empty wallets.

Thanks for the input guys, I realised I had the keyboard rudder control set up to full left/right. I have altered this to rudder left/right (so it operates in increments) & the plane (now a Tempest) responds 100%. So now flying with stalls/spins & gyros & loving it.
As a friend of mine said "the plane feels alive"
Thanks again
