Exhibit: Ka-52 Team Alligator
Problems I experienced included sound stutters, view lockups, crashes to the desktop.

" More than a few users here have mentioned that they get sound stutters at this point and the key here is to disable / turn down your DirectSound Acceleration in your CONTROL PANEL as opposed to the one found in your Ka-52 Menu."

"Zero G" and Jonathan "Jont" Wright wrote a small file which goes quite a way to fixing the main problems.
"This is a 3rd Party Patch for TA. Until SIMIS/GT get their act together and deliver a patch that will fix the problems with the FM, I have provided a patch here that eliminates the major horrors (in my opinion) in some of the flight model aspects. The problems we have addressed are these:
- Super-Stable Hover
- Axis Alignment
- Excessive Rotational Dampening
- Joystick Deadzone"

Bob "De Janitor" Roberts: "As far as I know KA-52 doesn't work too well with USB sticks; they came during the interim period of development and wasn't implemented well if they were indeed at all. Most of my feedback, dev and beta testing was on a Cyborg analog stick."
MiGMan: My Sidewinder Force Feedback 2 was indeed unusable, with no throttle control and uncontrollable pitch variations. Undeterred and on Bob's advice I plugged in my Flight Control System Mark I but unfortunately the erratic control persisted.
