    You need to post pictures your Axis Assignment interface settings.

    As an aside that pot does not appear to be securely mounted.

    You should have one DIR box checked orange for roll, as the DIR boxes determine which way an axis moves, and movement should follow this proforma: https://www.xsimulator.net/community/faq/which-way-to-set-simtool-axis-movements.230/

    In SimTools 1.3 you should aim to keep the total of all axis allocations at around 100%: https://www.xsimulator.net/community/faq/axis-assignment-percentage-totals.120/

    Once you get the basic configured properly it still takes some time to develop and refine motion profiles for each game: https://www.xsimulator.net/community/faq/steps-to-create-a-motion-profile.228/

    I did the test and it did not heat up when I put the cockpit on top and start the movements and get warmed up because of the weight I'm going to put the coolers on

    A proportional–integral–derivative controller (PID controller) is a control loop feedback mechanism (controller): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PID_controller

    Here is an analogous explanation of PID: http://www.xsimulator.net/community/threads/a-laymans-analogy-guide-to-pids.7649/

    And yes you use the SMC3 app to configure your settings.
