If you're using FS9 (FS2004), open the aircraft.cfg file with Notepad, locate the p_factor_on_yaw and gyro_precession_on_yaw entries in the [flight_tuning] section and decrease the value (or set to zero) as necessary. [flight_tuning]cruise_lift_scalar = 1.0parasite_drag_scalar = 1.0induced_drag_scalar = 1.0elevator_effectiveness = 1.0aileron_effectiveness = 1.0rudder_effectiveness = 1.0pitch_stability = 1.0roll_stability = 1.0yaw_stability = 1.0elevator_trim_effectiveness = 1.0aileron_trim_effectiveness = 1.0rudder_trim_effectiveness = 1.0p_factor_on_yaw = 1.0<-----decreasetorque_on_roll = 1.0gyro_precession_on_yaw = 1.0<-----decreasegyro_precession_on_pitch = 1.0
