    Aaaaaaaaaah thank you. Frame rate was 60 because "limit frame rate" was set to "vsync". I've set it to "Off" and FPS is now around 150 to 250 with max graphics quality on a 3840x2160 display and lag is now imperceptible. That's with OpenGL, slightly lower using Vulkan.

    Just for interest, this is on an Alienware R3 via Wine on Linux (OpenSUSE Tumbleweed) :)

    Now much closer to the feel and behaviour of the real-life counterparts. Thank you.

    Another question now... (new thread)

    There is a perceptible lag between moving a control and a response from RC8 which is not present in RC7, I estimate between 1/10th and 1/5th second. That is sufficient to render the simulation unusable for my purpose (F3a practice). All aircraft are affected and the effect is visible in the menu item Controller/ Assign Controls (Advanced). There is no visible lag in RC7 nor in my OS joystick test app. I have tried changing the servo speed setting for one of the aircraft servos in the vain hope that it might have an effect on the delay, but it does not. I am using the same event-based controller in RC7 and RC8. I would be grateful to hear from anyone who has experienced this, especially if they have a fix, or from anyone whose install does not have this flaw so that we can compare setups.

    Comments gratefully appreciated.

    Many thanks, pleased to report that changing propeller torque from zero to 0.8 in the .tmd file has resolved this for the one aircraft I've tested it on so far, the Krill Spark. I have other issues one of which is serious, but will start a new thread for each of them.

    I use RC7 / RC8 for F3a practise. I upgraded from RC7 Pro to RC8 expecting it to be better than RC7 and to take advantage of the additional F3a models in RC8 but I'm very disappointed to find excessive throttle-induced roll in RC8 (all aerobatic aircraft I tried). This was not evident in RC7. I have seen this mentioned by one other user but with no solution suggested. As a workaround is there any way of using models from RC8 in RC7? Particularly interested in Spark and Visa.
