I know squat about aerodynamics, but I thought that jet engines wouldn't have exhibited torque. However, I keep rolling to the left. Gyroscope effect, or something?

I just tried it, and I find no torque. Straight as an arrow down the runway, and no rolling when in the air.

I'd suggest checking to see if your stick is calibrating perfectly center, and that your aileron trim/rudder trim is also center.

When I landed, I noticed the plane pulling to the right. Turns out, it was because my rudder rocker is not centering properly.

Huh.

That might explain why the 109 was rolling so fast as well... I was putting that one down to alcohol.

Thanks, will calibrate when I get back.
