    Hello all,
    I'm setting up DCS on my rig (3x PT Mega Monsters, 1 actuator at front) and have noticed that DCS sends a large yaw reading through to sim tools. Even stationary on threshold, there is a reading of 150+ that DCS is sending out. However it has nil impact in flight, and nil on takeoff (which is when it would be really noticeable). Is this a DCS quirk to be lived with, or a plug-in related quirk. Has anyone else noticed this?

    Using DCS plugin. I've tried the DCS-Exp plugin, not convinced that I've done that correctly as when I choose that from the list, game engine reverts to DCS.

    Thanks, John

    Just an update - Was able to get DCS Exp working - congrats to all involved, works really well. Can confirm it does not have the yaw output anomaly that the generic DCS plugin has.
    Thanks, John

    I think the yaw value you saw from the original plugin was the heading :)
