I totally forgot about that fact.



So you are saying my stick is too short? Man ... how could you!?!


I will give a longer stick a try and an report back once accomplished.

The real MiG-29 doesn't have a stubby little control stick! Neither does the Spitfire, which people have also complained about, saying the pitch axis is far too sensitive.

It's all because our flight sticks are much too short, so control inputs tend to be too coarse, and it's PIO-City.

Yet you don't find it odd that people manage to control other aircraft without these problems just by adding a curve? I'm managing the Spit and even the TwitchMonster that is the Gazelle with my stubby little Warthog. Only the Mig-29 is proving to be a glitchy deathtrap.
