there have been updates in rotorlib libraries, does this lagging occur for you on latest Steam Dev build?

This kind of lagging does not occur anymore (which I am really thankfull for), but I do get a overall fps loss of 20-30 fps in advanced flight mode.

This ticket here can be resolved.

Thank you. The advanced flight model is indeed more resource demanding. I usually get about 5 FPS drop, it is possible that on lower machines it causes the game to stutter more.
