That's expected behaviour for prop airplanes: ... d_P-Factor
If that happens with jet planes as well, report back, please.

Some planes have a unrealistic amount of P Factor. So some may be harder to compensate that others.

So, what plane you flying?

Appears your stick is 2 dimensional-no twist function for rudder. Using "insert" and "enter" on keyboard is awkward,
while operating the stick, so you probably need to select the auto-coordination function. If you haven't already done
so, select "settings" in the start menu. In the upper right hand corner beneath "search" click on "show more";
then move slider to enable auto-coordination. If buttons 7 and 8 operate brakes, you can tap them to stay aligned
with runway.
