So, I was reading this in the patch notes:
Quote:
1) Increased the benefit of RCS Accelerator consoles.
- They will now provide a benefit closer to what is indicated by the tooltip.
- This is a larger change for slower ships with RCS Accelerators than ships that already had a fast turn rate.

2) Increased the turn rate bonus on the Tachyokinetic Converter in the same way that RCS Consoles were recently updated.
-This will benefit slower ships with the console more than faster ships.
--The tooltip is unchanged.
-The behind-the-scenes math has been altered to make the effect closer to the tooltip that is displayed.

3)Increased the Turn Rate bonus given by the Starship Impulse Thrusters skill.
- This will benefit all ships with this skill, but slower ships will see a larger bonus compared to what they were previously seeing from the skill.
-This is similar to the recent change to RCS consoles.
Was the turn rate changes on 2) and 3) not on Tribble before?

I'm curious to know how much of an increase this will end up being. On Holodeck pre-patch, my Fleet Defiant was getting a turn rate of 42.7 with an RCS MK XII purple, Tachyokinetic, 9 points in Impulse Thrusters (are there any equipment that boosts this? I don't think i had any...), and engine power level at 52.

Since I'm at work, I can't see for myself. But, I'm really hoping I can push that turn rate closer to 50! Especially with that new lockbox trait. So sexy...

After I logged in post-patch, my turn rate went up to 45.7.

I picked up the Helmsman trait and my turn rate is now up to 47.4.

So, with the Helmsman and the post-LoR update, I got a 4.7 turn rate increase.

My flightspeed went up to 30.26, which is up from 28.34.

The changes to the tachyokinetic converter and the skill Starship Impulse Thrusters were on Tribble. Before "Legacy of Romulus", all percentage-based turn bonuses were applied to BTR - 3, where BTR denotes the base turn rate of the ship. Now, the bonuses of RCS accelerators, the tachyokinetic converter, and Starship Impulse Thrusters apply to BTR. But engine power and the [Turn] modifier on engines still apply to BTR - 3.

Based on what you said, the helmsman trait seems to apply to BTR and not BTR - 3:

47.4 - 45.7 = 1.7 = 0.1 * 17
