when i calibrate my joystick it seems ok but when flying my plane always veers to the right. anyone else had this problem and how did they solve it? the ingame calibrations got me puzzled

in the ingame calibration the square is just 1 nitch to the right of centre. anyone else had this happen?

If it's ok in Windows Game Controllers Properties, it should be fine in the game input setup screen too. Recheck your calibration in Windows.

Also look into the use of trim. If the aircraft you're flying is equipped with rudder trim you should be able to get rid of most of the tendancy to turn, and if you also have aileron trim you can get rid of the rest of it.
