I was trying out different planes in the ground attack role today, seeing how each plane handles it. Now without getting into a lot of details my engine was hit and started to trail a thin line of smoke so I immediatly decided to head home rather than risking a crash landing. My engine cut out on my approack but I managed to land and coasted off into a field. Now I was just playing around with the lights, guns, gauges and whatever else. I tried to set my trim to the extreme to see what it looked like (for grins of course/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif ) and when I trimmed my rudder as far as it would go it actually rotated 360 degrees multiple times, and in each direction. The rudder peddals in the cockpit were going crazy, in a cirlce like the peddals on a bike. It was very entertaining to watch but I was wondering if anyone else has seen this. I'm sorry I didnt get a pic or a track, I guess I was too busy laughing.

Something's wrong with the site because I checked the URL and it's currently down. This bug sounds very intriguing however.

Hmm, I can see the pics (just copy and paste the URL in your browser, never mind the .txt extension, it is a pic)

Looks like your rudder has been shot off?

anyways, I'll look into it myself. Can you make a track of it?

Just land a P-40 and trim the rudder to one side as much as you can, no need for a track, it's easily recreatable.
