    After starting the engine's did you select " all engine's" prior to throttle up?

    Let me guess, you locked the tailwheel before take off? For some odd reason the B-25 spins out at about 50 Mph if you lock the tail wheel. Perhaps it's because it doesn't have a tail wheel?

    Anyway, to stop it from spinning out simply don't lock your tail wheel. It might slide a bit to the left but you should have no problems countering it with rudder.

    If all of the above suggestions didn't help, try using the wheel brakes. When drifting off to the left, apply right rudder and wheel brakes. You should turn right then.

    Also check any trim wheels that your controller may have

    Also, check if both engines are on and that you're applying power to BOTH engines. You might be applying power to one engine only for some reason (keyboard setup etc.).
