The frustrating bit is that this problem was not there a month ago; my pedals were working perfectly. Also in other sims I don not have this problem.
Thanks for your quick reply Jeff,
I tried it right away, but unfortunately it did not fix my problem.
I just assigned the rudder axis to my old joystick (CH fighterstick), and the problem is gone.
Is it possible there is a compatibility problem with the VKB-T-Rudder?
Thanks for your quick reply; It seems to be a problem with my pedals in combination with Aerofly; i just started a new thread...
I have a problem with my hardware rudder controls in combination with Aerofly 2.
I use the VKB T-Rudder Mk II as hardware rudder/tailrotor controls. I have been flying the R22 in Aerofly 2 without any problems when it just came out. Haven't flown for a few weeks, and all of a sudden the last time I fired up the sim I have a problem where the ruddercontrol has a sudden offset to the right, which makes flying impossible.
While my hardware pedals are in a neutral position; in the sim there is about a 50% right pedal input.
I have recalibrated my controls in windows; and I don't have this problem in other sims (I mainly fly X-plane and DCS).
In aerofly I have reconfigured and calibrated all controls too, but the problem persists.
Does anyone have a good idea?
As you feed in more power and collective to lift off, the helicopter will be twisted more around the rotor mast so you need to add more left torque pedal. Try to get a book on helicopters, see what your library has.
That is not my problem... I have been sim-flying helicopters in all the major sims (mainly X-Plane and DCS) for years... Since the release of the R22 in Aerofly I have been flying it without any problems in profi mode, and it changed all of a sudden the last time i fired up the sim. My question is if this behaviour is caused by an update or installing third party scenery, because i cant find any problems with my hardware
So I bought a Thrustmaster rudder for R22, but I am still struggling with hovering.
This is my procedure:
1. Gently increase collectives. Very gentle indeed.
2. R22 becomes light and begins to turn to the right.
3. I apply some left rudder to counter the torq until it stops turning right. Everything is OK at this stage, and R22 has not quite lifted off the ground though it is light and movable now.
4. I increase more collective. R22 is off the ground a few inches, and it immediately begins to tilt to the right. (Why does it tile to the right? No tutorial seems to indicate this.) I turn the cyclic to the left to compensate for this. And R22 now begins to get out of control. It can move towards any directions. Of course I will try to use the cyclic to counter the movement, but then R22 will move in another direction. I can never let it hover. It's always overcompensation.
I have watched videos of real R22 take off from Youtube. It's very stable, rising steadily and slowly from the ground, and stay there. No turning to the right, no tilting to the right. I'd really like to achieve this. How can I do it? I mostly want to know how can I do it correctly in step 4, that is immediately after I have lifted off the ground. Looking forward to your advice.
Is it possible that the Aerofly R22 has a small bug recently? Because I was flying on profi mode without any problems until a month ago. Tonight I had the same problem as Frui! I have calibrated my hardware in windows and in Aerofly (I use VKB pedals); I see the pedals moving in the cockpit, and I am able to control while on the ground. Once I lift off I immediately lose tail rotor control and the R22 turns to the right...
I have installed some extra ORBX and aerosoft addons... any ideas?
