Hi
I dunno if this is a known issue as I always fly 109's, but I noticed this today when flying around in some Yaks.
The Yak 3 compass indicates the opposite bearing to what it should.
I did a search on the forum and didnt see anyone else post about it so just thought you might wanna look.

Notice the bearing in the speedbar as apposed to the compass reading.
Sorry if this is already a known issue.
Man and its hard to use the thing, I keep wanting to duck my head under the desk to see it lol.

It's been discussed before, this is how it will be, Oleg said to use the speedbar.

...whats been discussed? The compass in cockpit being wrong, or that not flying straight will affect what the compass reads?

The compass is wrong.

This is why most LW folks try to get the speedbar removed whenever possible - it gives them yet another advantage.
