I am having problems banking right quickly in a P-38 and have had to trim the rudder and ailerons right to avoid this, but it makes it a hastle to fly, always having to correct the plane. Is there any way to avoid this? thanks

Banking isn't a problem for me unless I'm in the J going faster than 500kmh. What exactly is your problem?

S`

What speed are you at tryin to turn and what P38.. Like all planes, u cant man handel em..take it easy, and slowly make the turn harder...dont jus yank it into a turn...you'll stall out most times man handelin it...with the J, i changed my senseitivites.. Dont need to for the L...suggest you set everything to default..and try flyin the L, if not already flying it...

Check your joystick calibration.

i was flying the L and when i turn left my ailerons swing way to the left but when turning right it takes 4X longer to get to be at a right angle with the ground.

Ok, do you mean turning or rolling? In rolling the airplane (aka bank, controlled with ailerons), I get equal times for both sides.
