I wonder if he's referring to the visual "turning cue". When you're flying with both mouse buttons pressed down, if you move your mouse at all, the ship banks as if it's in a full turn. This is just to let you know that a turn input was made. On a normal or slower ship, this isn't a big deal, but on a super fast, super turn rate ship maybe it unconsciously forces some to try and correct it and they end up spinning all over the place.
In fact, flying Mirandas and tier two ships, it has annoyed me. I'm pointing my ship, cursor at an anomali (I need to learn how to spell that), and my ship is constantly jerking side to side although I'm barely correcting a degree. A fix would be to only activate the roll when a turn of more degrees is entered.
This hasn't been important enough for me to comment or complain about. But never underestimate a person's ability to use someone elses problems to their benefit!!! (grin)
