most realistic drag setting for FF Joystick

Recommended Posts

Hi there,I couldnt afford the CH Yoke, so I went for the Saitek Cyborg Force instead which was on sale right now... and after some flying I must say I am not disappointed! Force Feedback is such a fun thing, you can feel the runway when you touch down. Nice!Additionally its MUCH more precise than my old stick because its optical.. no more potentiometers that can get old/dusty.In fact I needed to reduce FF power a bit because the effects are so strong. Also (and now coming to the purpose of this post) in the Controller Settings there is one option called something like drag/opposition where you can set the opposition force when you move the joysick to the edges, so it will behave like a normal joystick with a spring.Question is: Whats realistic in a real GA plane (172, 182 or Baron which i fly most right now)... when you turn the yoke, is there any drag at all as to maybe prevent you from getting into unwanted... ahem... flight modes? :)Any input appreciated... thanks btw for a great, helpful, friendly community! Have been reading posts for a week now and found invaluable insights. Thanks!celticmatrix
