I have IL2 and I can't seem to stop the aircraft from wandering to the right - constantly. I suspect this is supposed to simulate engine torque. I have a Saitek cyborg evo joystick. I'm too stupid to set this all up right. Anyone with a little patience out there to guide me. Thanks.

Did you calibrate the stick in windows before playing?,the next thing I would suggest is triming the plane,I'm sure more of an expert will be round to give you help soon.

Do as steiner says...
If I can be of any help, I set up all my settings to value within game setup to 100.
Nice, simply and easy http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif .

And you can fly that way with neutral trim yet with less bleed in mixed maneuvers as well.
You get something back in that from the always touchy but linear-response stick. That
little bit of pull near center gets the same change as the same pull anywhere else, makes
a difference in control.

I'm not saying don't trim, just that it's better with all the same sliders during fast mixed
maneuvers (dogfight) with neutral trim.

For me, I have compromised since I used all-100's a few years ago. The sliders form a straight
line now from 44 to 100 since 4.07 and about 60-70 to 100 from PF till 4,07. The handling
change of 4.07 went a long way to lowering the left end for me. Filter alone let me do some
of that before 4.07. There was also a time when I ran 91 to 100 for sliders after all-100's
and all-90's.

Wasn't it CHDT or a name like that who was big on all-100's back in 2002-2003?

This is a Great little program, you can easily set up your stick how you like it and save it.
( a gentile curve works best for me) also has filtering and deadzone sliders.
