Fast overturning rotary knobs

Every rotary knob (VOR/DME, each on the MCP, ILS Cours selector)is over-sensitive. For example, while turning the Heading Selector Knob on the MCP it starts to overturn and overshooting, increasing it's rate of change independently.

That's the same issue for every rotary knob on the flight deck. Especially changes in the ALT/HDG/CRS lead regulary to overshoot the ALT to the maximum/minimum value its capable of.
Seems to be a general problem, as standard P3D aircraft nor any other add-on aircraft has the same problem.

Thanks for input but we need at least several upvotes to consider a suggestion.

I would also like them to be adjusted so they don't spin too fast.

Holy...
That's not a question of upvotes.
A rotary knob has a constant rate of turn. Yours does not.
Please fix it!

+1 - I always seem to overshoot the number I was intending to dial in and have to scroll back

This "accelerated" behavior is really inconvenient and hard to use! I hated it in QW's models, I hate it in the CS757.

At least give us an option please.

I see 5 upvotes. We need 5 more and the acceleration is gone forever.

I just don't like the way the knobs currently accelerate until they are much too fast, and it makes it impossible to stop at the right speed/heading/altitude, so I would still like some acceleration in the knobs.

This... "some" acceleration is fine, but not to the levels that it currently is, and if a member of the Beta team is saying this... That has to carry a little more weight I say Smiley
