I have recently upgraded my X-Plane copy and noticed that my helicopter is very difficult (nearly impossible) to fly. I am using the Robinson R22 Beta II from x-plane.org which worked fine up to recently. I use a Logitech Extreme 3D Pro joystick for the cyclic and collective combined with Thrustmaster TFRP pedals for the tail rotor. As soon as I take off, the helicopter starts spinning so fast that even flooring the pedal in the opposite direction of the spin barely stops it. This used to all work very well before. I've tried using the joystick for yaw but there is no difference.When calibrating the controls, all looks good.
I recently deleted my whole X-Plane installation and reinstalled it. Things go back to working well but when I upgrade, the helicopter becomes uncontrollable.
Any ideas what could be going on? When displaying joystick data on the screen things look normal enough except when I fight the helicopter to stay level. If I manage to land it properly and try taking off again, the problem seems amplified.
Thanks for any pointers,
