Is this in roll only? The ailerons are much more powerful, but also damped.
There shouldn't be any rapid movement in the ailerons, but the stick
reflects the input. Look at the ailerons in an external view - are they
jumping around too?

There is the gyro effect of the prop, and the tail is offset to compensate,
but it shouldn't be too difficult. Try the rudder trim. 

What joystick are you using? I have to say that I suspect a hardware problem
by your description. I'm on my 4th Logitech (various kinds) - all replaced
under guarantee, and all behaving as you describe. Well, 3 of them. So far
so good with this one.

Sea Hurricane next, when I've done with this one. Then back to re-work the
Spitfire and Hunter. Probably a year's work!

Did you try the yasim.diff yet (posted to the list earlier) - if you haven't
I would be grateful for any feedback - it shouldn't break anything, and
enables several other features such as the boost gauge and the Boost Control
Cutout. The modified supercharger output should make landing much easier
