    Nose wheel moves in take off?

    Hello All, I came to this odd problem.
    I used to use my joystick slider to control power in
    my aircraft. (I have Project magenta cockpit and FSX)
    Once I installed Saitek Pro throttle following problem occured :
    When I push the levers to max/TOGA the nose wheel turn to
    left so my aircraft goes to the grass.
    I have checked that controls should work ok. I have not touched
    fsuipc. No difference if I have saitek drivers or not.
    This happens with all aircraft I've tried.
    Any idea?

    It could be P Factor. That is when the precessional torque created by the engine/propeller create a tendancy to turn the airplane one direction or the other depending on what direction the engine turns. This happens in real planes so they made FS do it also.

    Either that, or your equipment is not calibrated correctly.

    what aircraft ?

    if its a twin jet, maybe you are just powering one engine ?

    have you checked the assignment of all axes ?

    A kinda solution found, but...

    Thanks for replys guys, I found a fix for this.
    I had to add some dead zone to my saitek rudder module.
    The nosewheel went aggressively to left and right (Not normal
    with any aircraft I suppose) when it was in the center of the
    movement. Now it works, strange.
    The FCU is still giving me headache. The pointers in upper ecam
    which supposed to show the n1/thrust acts nervously. They stay
    calm in the idle but when I move the (Saitek) levers forward they go up
    with jumping a bit. Maybe a PM FCU thrust sensivity problem?
    Without PM FCU they go up smoothly.
