    Question Unusual Z Axis movement

    S! All,

    I have an unusual issue that I cannot seem to resolve.

    I have looked throughout the forums to avoid asking for help and my issue is not mentioned, yes plenty of joystick settings and the like.

    I have no issues with my controllers, everything is mapped in-game I have an X56 joystick and logitech G pro rudder pedals but do not use the programming feature. Both are brand new

    Before I take off I always reset my trim and then adjust for the plane I'm flying.

    Once airborne, sometimes throughout the flight, the Z axis just throws the plane around as if an F-16 blew past my tail. To stop this I have to keep resetting all trim (Insert, Home, Page Up) this becomes an issue when dive bombing of course.

    Again, I do not use the programming software that came with the X56, I am wondering though there are 2 little icons showing pedals and the flight stick but would this interfere with my Z axis?

    Any ideas?



    Thank you for reading my wall of text.

    Hi Lenny,

    Thank you very much for responding.

    I really wish it was that.

    This does not happen in ROF, IL@1946, IL2GB, only in CloD.

    My rudder pedals are brand new.

    I wonder if you need to add a little deadzone in the rudder controls setup in CLIFFS. It maybe the other sims default to having a deadzone?

    Can you view the axis in Windows USB controller settings to see if there is any jitter at centre?

    Bluntman, TWC has winds that vary by altitude. When you pass through a level your plane yaws depending on the difference in wind strength. Does this sound like what you are experiencing? You can verify by checking the wind report in one of the TAB-4 options.

    Thank you Baldrick, I did this as well and solid center when viewing in settings. I believe it is what Dawson below is describing, which makes more sense as to why its happening.

    Again thank you for your response.

    Hello Dawson,

    Yes this is exactly what I'm experiencing!

    I apologize to everyone and should have been much clearer and say this only happens on the TWC server.

    I knew the winds were modeled but wow Thank you, this really makes sense now to me, it must be when i just pass that level and or stay in that level when it happens.

    Ill pay more attention to the winds than I have been.

    Thank you.

    Merry Christmas all, Happy holidays and have a great New Years

    S!

    How accurately is this implemented?

    I don't fly in real life but it feels very weird and artificial. It feels like there are detents layered all over the sky that you fly through when climbing or diving.
