    I have been trying to setup a reasonable simulation of roll in Prepar3D. The problem is that even at 100% washout is way too slow to return at any sort of reasonable rate. Even at 100% washout it takes about 30 seconds or more to return to level once the roll is complete. The roll rate on the Raptor jet is about a second.

    Can anyone please advise regarding their experiences and any possible workarounds.

    I've never been able to get washout to work as I would expect, so I never use it. Just thought is was me:D.

    Hmmm, washout is critical for flight sims that involve aerobatics.

    For me washout works, just far too slow a rate to be of any use. Is that the same for you @SeatTime?

    Any ideas @value1?
