When the airplane is unhooked it moves to the left, if i hold it with the joystick once in the air it does the same thing, it turns to the right and down and falls down.
when i have managed to fly it is very difficult to keep it stable without constantly correcting it with the joystick.

Hard to tell from that description, but the second part ("turns to the right and down and falls down") sounds like it's stalling out, probably losing too much airspeed by trying to climb too steeply.

First of all I'd make sure your joystick is calibrated correctly.


If it is take a gentle plane for a spin (Albatros D5, definitely NOT Fokker DR1 or Camel) and try the training missions. If you are still having problems post here.

Spammers are not my thing...except for the one with the massive k******s. I was impressed with that one.

In general, with spring-loaded joysticks, all the planes are tail heavy to varying degrees in RoF.

Some (mostly British) have elevator trim that can help mitigate that, but in short, you're going to have that issue with most of the planes unless you:  A> use a Force Feedback stick,  and/or  B>  Adjust response curves.


Gooseh's advice is sound.  Start with (free plane) Albatros DVa, which is both gently forgiving, and capable (in expert hands), and get a sense of how it flies.  If you're experiencing difficulties there, then a more detailed post will help us assist with whatever issue you're continuing to have....
