Enstrom 280 Uncontrollable Yawing

Enstrom 280 Uncontrollable Yawing
I downloaded the Enstrom 280FX from Simviation and installed it according to directions. On takeoff, the helo gyrates uncontrollably in a 30 degree yaw back and forth. The only way to stop the yawing is to reach 0 knots at altitude.

I am a real life pilot whose first flight was in an Enstrom F-28. I have 30 years experience with Flight Simulator (I have Flight Simulator 2, 2002. 2004. and FSX) and have several helicopters in all of the last three FS versions.

Has anyone else encountered uncontrollable yawing in this Enstrom? If so, how did you correct the problem?

I have had a similar problem with the Bell 222 which is still unresolved because it will not start despite the new procedure. However, my copy of the Enstrom 280FX flies beautifully and lands on water etc as I used to do many years ago.

RE: Enstrom 280 Uncontrollable Yawing
Our Enstrom uses the default Robinson R22 FDE, hence the uncontrollable yawing. We will revisit a number of our early projects and give them a facelift, the Enstrom being one.
