Default P-51 control

I've not been able to control the P-51 or any prop a/c since 2.5 came out. No matter what settings the A/C seem to have a mind of their own. In a very gental turn the A/C does an over the top spin...any help??

Make sure your controls are set up. Go into axis controls, click in adjust, and make sure when you move the pitch and roll axis that it doesn't make any abnormal movements, exaggerate, or jitter.

DCS will set your axis curves at a 100% 1-1 that is fine if you are using a stick with a length of 28 inches like the real planes.
Adjust your roll axis to 20
set your pitch axis to 30
set deadband to 2-4 if your stick has a HAL sensor a little more if it is using Pots.


Enjoy the new feel of the plane

A/C means aircraft in this thread, in a multicrew aircraft it would mean Aircraft Commander.

Can you explain that a bit? I have Deadzone, Saturation X, Saturation Y and Curvature. So what exactly should I set to 20?

I think deadzone would only be necessary if you have a heavy stick, like the TM WT. I used the T-Flight and now the T-16000M(I luv it), both light sticks, and there was and still is no need for it.

Deadzone is best used to get rid of twitchiness at the center caused by an inconsistent signal from the hardware. Use as little deadzone as possible, otherwise you are just reducing your effective control range.
