    Default Looking for someone using a Saitek X56 HOTAS

    I have two X56 flight control systems and they are both having the same problem. I would like to find another X56 user to discuss this with. Here is the deal. When I try to fly inverted the plane will not stay in the inverted position. It immediately flips out of that position causing some lose of control and disorientation. The same thing happens when trying to do a roll. As soon as it gets inverted the plane flips out. If I slow the simulation rate to the slowest I can see it snapping out of the inverted position. I have contacted Logitech support but they do not have an FSX or P3D program they can test this with and without them seeing it in action I don't believe we will ever come to a solution. If I could make an Mp3 video of the problem in action maybe they could play that, but I don't know how to do that. If there is an X56 simmer reading this please respond. Thanks

    Surely there must be some forum member who uses an X56 for flight simulation. I can't be the only one. Can I?

    I'm still puzzling how the hardware could even cause that. I really doubt that the stick logic can recognize inverted. Does this happen with ALL aircraft?

    With a few exceptions, most civilian GA will not remain inverted, the wing design makes them want to correct. Military and akro aircraft should be able to maintain inverted flight

    Yes this happens with all aircraft that can fly fast enough to do an aileron roll. It only happens with my X56 joystick. I also have an X52 and flying inverted or doing a roll is not a problem. Also to make things even stranger. If I make a video using OBS the playback shows the inversion or roll in perfect form. If I play back the roll using the instant replay in FSX or P3D the problem shows there as in live flight. ???
