Hi, I'm implementing a airplane game but I have a problem with the drag force,
For now (testing) I'm using only 2 forces
FinalForce = Thrust + Drag
Acceleration = FinalForce/mass
Velocity += Acceleration
Position += Velocity

The problem is that Drag keeps adding values to the acceleration and the object is oscillating forward and backward.

Here is my implementation:



float speedSQ = cml::dot(velocity, velocity); //Squared speed
if (speedSQ > 0.0) { // If applied to 0 then normalize gives #Inf
cml::vector3f normVel = cml::normalize(velocity); //Normalized Velocity
cml::vector3f Fd = (normVel * -1.0) * (0.1 * speedSQ); // Reverse Velocity normal vector multiplied by ConstDrag * speed^2
std::cout << velocity[2] << " " << Fd[2] << std::endl; // Debug output
AddForceVec(Fd); //Add the drag force
}

//Update Transform
acceleration = vecForce / mass;

velocity += acceleration * _dt;

// Adds the velocity
cml::matrix44f_c transMat;
cml::matrix_translation(transMat, velocity * _dt);
transform *= transMat;



Thrust add:


//on Key Up
player.AddForceVec(cml::vector3f(0,0,1));



I've tried different constants, different arrangements of code but still

Here is a debug output from (std::cout << velocity[2] << " " << Fd[2] << std::endl; // Debug output)
