    Default Really Strange Slewing Problem

    After installing and setting up a new CH Pro Yoke to replace my old one which only had a throttle slider (did not have prop or mixture control) my slewing function got weird. Now whenever I hit 'Y" on the keyboard to move the plane around on the ground, the plane immediately begins to spin quickly ccw. If I hit "5" on the keyboard or move either rudder pedal the spinning abruptly stops and I can proceed with normal slewing. This is after calibrating the yoke and pedals and no control surfaces are deflected. The rudder trim is centered. When I disable the joysticks all is well. What the heck?

    Hit Ctrl = K before Y, the problem is with your stick/yoke. De-activates it. When you have finished slewing hit Ctrl = K again to re-activate your stick/yoke. Remember to keep the sky up and the land/water down.

    That's an acceptable workaround but there should be a way to fix it so that slewing works like it used to.

    if the plane spins in slew the rudder is not centred. (rudder deflection causes spin)

    Just look under settings / assignments... click on slew mode first, then select the yoke. Delete the unnecessary assignment that is causing it to spin and all will be good.
