# 1 Odyssey Turning Tip
03-08-2012, 11:40 AM
I noticed something the other day that I hadn't noticed before.

We all know that turning an Odyssey is like rolling a boulder uphill.

However, at close to 0 throttle, the Odyssey rotates pretty quickly. In fact, it seems like it rotates faster at 0 throttle than most other large ships.

What I found the other day is that if I tap R to disengage the throttle, rotate while it's coasting to a stop, then tap R again to throttle back up it actually turns pretty well. There's still coasting, but it's a small price to pay to turn the nose of this behemoth in the direction I want it to go.

Now this was in an exploration cluster. I have not tried this in space combat, but I hope to give it a shot very soon.
