Two Quick Waypoint Questions

Postby BlueYonder » Tue Sep 18, 2018 7:25 pm

Trying to set up a simple two waypoint racetrack pattern for an AI aircraft to follow. Want the aircraft to fly directly at the waypoint and once through it do a 35 degree left turn to point right at the other waypoint and just repeat over and over again.

Having two issues.

First, how do I specify turn direction? I realize I can specify another couple waypoints to force it to turn left, but the addition of another waypoint makes it kind of choppy.

Second, during the turn the ai aircraft overshoots the heading to the new waypoint and then has to do a minor correction as it travels to it. How do I avoid overshooting?
