Hi there,

I have noticed that the compass in the ASK-21 compass rotates/revolves the wrong way. I don't know how long it has been like this but I don't remember it being like this the last time I flew it which was a few weeks ago now. Is this a bug or is it supposed to be like this?

Skip to 2:50 and watch the compass, It is rotating/revolving the opposite way to what you see in a real aircraft. (Not my video btw)

Everything is normal. The compass should be "steady" in the earth referential. The aircraft is "spinning around the ball" as it should.

Plus, when you turn left -> the value decreases.
