Yeah, my son says he has similar problems when flying the Harrier, so I'm planning to upgrade to a Thrustmaster T.16000M FCS HOTAS later in the year.

Ramsay, its PIO for def. The joystick is so sensitive with the harrier, just a slight touch and its off. Im going to look into a new joystick but not sure which one yet.

Update: Wow, adjusted the curves a bit. 10 Deadzone - 30 Curvature on Pitch and Roll. Rudder 25 Curvature.


Well, I managed to land it. Not the best but takeoff was a breeze. I could turn the plane around and when it went into PIO I managed to get out of that as well.


These settings are a great starting point for me, so I will be practicing carrier landing tomorrow.

Released the tension of the joystick by 1 1/2 turns which has made a huge difference. Still gonna look at a better joystick for the future
