I really apologize for even suggesting this, and certainly mean no disrespect against your airmanship, but because I can't think of anything else at the moment -- AND BECAUSE (embarr[Mod - Happy Thoughts]ingly) I'VE DONE IT MYSELF! -- when you're experiencing undesired stiffness, verfiy you have disconnected your autopilot....

Yeah I've disconnected autopilot, do I need to disconnect the button below autopilot aswell?

 

Plus it's not stiff, it's like kind of delayed, I steer down and it'll steer down really slowly and it won't past I'd say 5 degrees downwards nor upwards. Sure it couldn't be the autopilot but I'll try again today, I hope not

When I first started flying it, i didn't pay attention what the black and yellow knobs at the fwd pedestal area were, while adjusting wxr, i twisted them and ended up having an unbelievable flight, I barely managed to land the acft. They are autoflight controls, but twisting them didn't help with regular flying too. Any chance you did the same?
