    Thanks, Vic -- most times it works fine for me, but once in a while it acts up. No pattern I've been able to determine. Of course I likely use it in ways different from most, since most of my sim...

    Thanks, Pat. I suspect few people run into this, if any -- typical for the rare problem I ask about. It's not serious, but is an annoyance.

    Evidently no one else is running into this. Perhaps it's a race condition on my machine, or something to do with settings, but so far I have no starting point for an investigation.

    Did you disconnect your joystick/pedals (yes, you said all hardware, but...) and all USB/gameport connections? To the best of my knowledge, the current throttle setting information is dynamically set...

    The movement of the twist grip is so different from using rudder pedals that, though I know there are a lot of folks who like it, I can't come to grips with it (pedals are ingrained in my synapses),...

    Just a further clarification, since you really do sound confused: mesh is just the shape of the terrain, mountains, hills valleys, rolling hills, etc. Think of a wire mesh shaping a model (diorama,...

    An NDB (not NBD), or Non-Directional Beacon is such that if there is a crosswind as you attempt to fly to (or directly from) the station you'll fly an arc, thus your heading will change constantly...

    Losing Multiplayer View when in MP

    In multiplayer there is a view which aims your camera directly at the other player, regardless of location or distance. You can access it either through the 'S' - 'SHIFT S' sequence or through the...

    I see that, too, from time to time over the years, in various VCs (the Lotus L-39 is one I recall, but there are others), but not necessarily when I first get into the VC -- often it's OK then and...

    Unless you've completely changed it, AI traffic also uses the default aircraft.

    All aircraft (if flown accurately) will follow the same path on a given ILS. But speed (and other) differences will cause aircraft to follow different paths from the flare on. Too much speed down...

    Set it up the way you want it, save the flight as your default, then exit the sim so that it will retain the changes, is my best suggestion. If that doesn't do it for you, then someone else will have...

    Just as in a car or on a bicycle, looking too close to you in an airplane when landing results in less than desirable control of the vehicle. During the approach (visual) your aim point is near the...

    What weird logic. Flying isn't exceptionally difficult, but it IS far from intuitive, and is best with a reasonable amount of training. And airplane differences are much greater than those on cars,...

    In addition to the above comments/questions, I'd ask whether you can fly the aircraft without the ILS, without the autopilot. And, as asked by nuitkati, what aircraft?

    Now you're asking for a more difficult speculation, since I have no idea how you will respond to the instruction, nor of your current skill set, especially as applied to the real world. Nor do I have...

    Agreed they are not much alike, Keith. I didn't intend to imply that you leave the aircraft alone, though, which is why I said, "...as the aircraft will generally do a lot of the correction itself,...

    You might get lucky and do "A", but it's more likely to be in between the two, walk away from it but with possibly some damage to the aircraft.

    You make some excellent points, Rishav. I'd add the slight delay in response to your controls in FSX/P3D, making it harder to coordinate your inputs with the visible results -- not too much of a...

    Nope -- the post provided a link, but it was asking a question. I saw nothing that said anything about money. Guess that was in the linked site. I don't see asking a question as a problem, but...
