Default Turn coordinator backwards

Since the latest 1.5OB update the ball on the turn coordinator is telling me to add opposite rudder when turning, which makes zero sense whatsoever.

I tested this by flying sideways and didn't see anything unusual.

If you slide to one side, the ball will tell you to yaw towards the direction of travel. Therefore the ball itself appears to be responding corectly to lateral acceleration.

If it's backwards in forward flight, then that's an FM issue.

(There are so many forces acting on the ball when you turn in forward flight that I can't make heads or tails of what it's doing)

Yea same here. New to Huey, and rotor wings as such, but this has me puzzled too. In forward flight, I bank to the left for example, and the ball is telling me to add right rudder - step on the ball principle.

I gave up my Huey to someone else in my squad so I can't check this for myself but I can say with some authority that the turn and slip indicator in any helicopter works exactly the same as it does in any airplane.


Knock-Knock, if you haven't changed any power setting, then the turn and slip seems to be lying to you. Try flying straight ahead while banking to the left or right. If the ball goes to the low side, it appears to be working properly. You could also, while flying straight ahead, initiate a turn to the left or right by just using the pedals, keeping your "wings" level, and if the ball slides over to the outside of the turn it is working properly.

The ball has ALWAYS done that in the Huey. I've had it since it was released and it always seems to throw the ball to the outside, opposite of what happens in a fixed wing, when you bank left or right.

The ball goes to the high side in a bank without adjusting power. It goes to the low side in every other DCS aircraft, including the Mi-8.
