When the camera follows the plane (playing with a joystick), the roll rate is added to the indicator, resulting in the displayed rate being practically twice what it really is. E.g. in the attached screenshot, I am rolling left at around 40 degrees, and the indicator is tilted the same amount in respect to the plane, which results in it being displayed at 80 degrees from the screen vertical. Moreso, If I take the horizon as reference, it looks like my plane is heading down. Not sure if that's a bug, but I find it counter-intuitive.
The behavior when using the mouse control is ok.

I suggest either tilting the indicator with the screen as reference, or implementing it as a "virtual horizon". Or at least have the latter option.

It's "Russian Mode".

Seriously, I've been flying sims and real life planes for decades and had no clue the Russians did it differently.

There's a few threads floating around already to "correct" the gauge to the world standard, but it is what it is for now.
