F14B, I have not flown the A yet.

 

I have been having an issue where the jet slowly turns to the right. I tried trimming for it, auto pilot, everything and nothing worked.

So, I went looking for the issue and found it.

The right engine is at a lower rpm than the left, causing the jet to slightly yaw to the right and changing course without constant stick pressure. At idle, the left engine sits about 71 and the right will be at 69. I use the Saitek X52 which only has a single throttle for both engines. 

When I go to external F2 view, it shows both engines at the same power setting. Also, temp and fuel flow are altered to show the different power settings on the engines. So the instruments agree on the engine disparity.

I did try to uncouple the throttle and then move the right throttle independently, and that didn't fix it either. Should I try uninstalling the module and then reinstalling it? No issues with the Hornet, or the other aircraft with multiple engines.

Any ideas?

If I am not mistaken, and I very well could be, the engines being slightly different from one another is intentional. As no two engines in real life perform exactly the same.

Yep, not a bug, it's a feature. Devs were talking about it. You're lucky though because such difference is quite rare.

I don't believe you couldn't do anything about it - both trimming (yaw) or uneven power setting should make you straight.

You checked all your axis binds to make sure nothing is double bound. Say rudder to throttle. Happens to me when I setup a new plane. Comes screwed up by default.


Yes, I was having a problem where the Hornet kept rolling to the right, checked my axis on my stick and changed it, the roll stopped. Double checked on the Tomcat, nothing there. I understand that two engines operate slightly different from each other, but what is weird is not being able to trim it out. A bit of rudder to counteract the yaw should work, but for some reason, it just doesn't.

I will have to double check my key bindings, maybe something got screwed up with the trimming function. Was sure that if there was a problem it would be axis tuning, but maybe that just didn't copy over correctly.

Thanks, will check that out.

For some reason my rudder trim key binding was messed up.
