So I recently bought X-Plane 11 and I've seen aircrafts drifting left and off the runway on final. I'm not sure if it is my EXTREME3D PRO joystick or X-Plane itself, And it happens to most of the aircraft.

With propellers engines (clockwise/anticlockwise) you have gyroscopics effects which can explain roll and twist when increasing or reducing power, when turning left or right, when pulling/pushing stick ...

It also happens with my 737, and it Slowly drifts off course.......

If it happened to me in real life, I could be having a drift because of the wind, and I would 'crab' into the wind.
