Was wihsing I could do a flight from YBBN-YPMQ today in the 208B, but the FDE won't let me, as soon as I take my hand off the stick, it begins to do a steep turn to the left, I dont want to be holding my joystick for a hours, so unfortanetly my night in Australia is runied. Guess ill be flying for BAV instead :)But seriously, Ive calibrated my JS but it still doesnt fix it, anybody else experience this?

Do you have rudder pedals or a joystick with twist-rudder? Play with your Realism Settings maybe, specifically Torque, P-Factor, and lastly uncheck auto-rudder (unless you have no rudders!). Also, do as 2wolves said, and once safely in the air, add trim. Flying the real Caravan, everywhere except cruise, you are constantly in a rudder / aileron trim battle! Anytime you make a minimal pitch change, power change, or airspeed change you need to re-trim!Let us know if you figure it out :)

Hi Aidan,I also use that joystick, and do not have these issues!Could you please report to us with your Realism Settings?Unfortunately, it's always about the left turning tendencies. So, unless you "trim it out", you will always have some turning tendency.Please report back with your settings, I have to go to training :(

Flight Model:Everything Realstic except Crash Tolerance.

Not sure what to say here! I know you have to trim the plane to make it fly normal when you are not making changes. However, this seems like a deeper problem. Maybe try to contact Carenado email support?Maybe try and fly with sliders full left and see what that does. I tested on General, PFactor, Torque, and Crash Tolerance full right, and don't have this problem, but you do need trim.

The Problem is either on or off,Ill contact them now anyway. You only need to trim really when you want to hold something, correct? After takeoff say, winds are 0knts the plane will demand to bank to the left or right - the real aircraft shouldn't do that. Correct me if I am wrong.

Its not the FDE, I fly this with Saitek pedals, yoke, and throttle, and Ido not have a problem like this, takes off smoothly, and then when you trimit properly you can fly it hands off although I usually put on the AP by thattime. I fly realism full right btw.

I'm in agreement here: Not the FDE. The Caravan flies beautifully with my CH stick/TQ/pedals arrangement.

Same here with Kurt's setup except I have a Pro Throttle USB.

Really Werid. It only happens with Carenado also, I can run the A2A Cub fine, it will stay level with no problems.

I'm not sure what to say here. The airplane will roll left due to left turn tendencies. The real Caravan requires constant trimming. The Caravan also has a 106" propeller diameter, which creates significant PFactor. Have you tried trimming it to the right a little to see what happens? Usually if I get a +2 or 3 to the right, turns are virtually eliminated!It'll be interesting to see what Carenado says!

From the email:

I really don’t know what could be happening here.We have not received any report about it before.Are you running the aircraft in full realism?Carenado
I tried trimming also, it just keeps rolling.

Actually, I did record a video earlier today of it using my iPhone but its playing up so I cant put it on the PC. Ill try again and if it fails ill use Fraps, the only issue with that is you cannot see the position of the joystick at the same time as I did on the first video.

Have you checked that your stick is calibrated properly, it might also be a good idea to increase the roll dead zone slightly.

Yup, I calibrate all the time. Increase roll dead zone? How?

I you have the correct drivers installed for your Joystick you should be able to adjust the dead zone in the windows game controllers calibration interface.
