    Hey everyone. New user, currently researching motion rigs. I would like to ask anyone who use xplane and simtools together with a 3dof rig (yaw/traction loss) - preferably those who also fly helicopters: the primary question is, is the yaw axis translated well when using rudder pedals?
    I'm also curious about what is it like to hover - are the subtle pitch/roll movements of the helicopter translated well, making it easier to hover?
    I'm currently leaning towards the prosimu t1000 3dof rig (if the yaw axis is simulated well in xplane) and would be keen on people's experiences of it together with xplane if there are any.

    Thanks and a have a good day!

    Did you ever get the good preset values for the Yaw?
