NO! NO! NO! This can't be happening!

As some of you know, I was having trouble with my aircraft all banking to the right and left with no explanation, and after many tests to find out the cause, I still was non the wiser and purchased a new copy of M$ FS2004, uninstalled my original copy- then re-installed the simulator on a new harddrive.

The default planes where fine, so I carefully installed my Carenado C206 again, and low-and-behold, it began banking once airborne again! I installed more aircraft from the original zips, including:

-> Project Globe Twotter
-> All my iFDG airbus's
-> All my Just Flight Flying Club aircraft
-> My FSNORDIC Maule

which all veer to the left of the runway on takeoff and bank to the left/right in mid air for no apparent reason Shocked

Because I could not belive what was happening, I wen't upstairs on the family computer and installed FS2004 (for the first time on that machine) and only 1 addon- the Carenado 206. I then took a flight a recived the exact same banking problem. I am compleatly lost Surprised

Also, a few of the installs such as the C-27J Spartan from this website, accelerate really really fast down the runway, and once in the air, continue to accelerate to more than 1000kias Exclamation and I don't hear the powerful turboprop noise either, all I get is the default C172 noise- what's all that about?

Apart from that, everything is fine, a good 90% of my aircraft work perfectly, and my fs2004 runs really smooth, after 2 days of re-installing everything.

If any of you reading this can help me in anyway at all, please don't hesitate to post a reply.

Thanks,

CT,
Just three ideas that you can try.
From MS.

From me.
Download new video drivers, clean out your old drivers and install the new ones.

Also I would unplug the joystick, delete the software for it and see if you can fly with the keyboard, if so then you problem is the stick.

I hope it's something simple.

Good luck

Thanks RM, I never saw that article. I think you may be onto something Laughing

I have gone through and done everything on that page with no differnce to the banking problem yet, but I dont get this bit:

Method 3: Change the Fuel selector setting to Off
1. Start a new flight in Flight Simulator.
2. On the Aircraft menu, click Fuel.
3. In the Fuel selector box, click Off.
4. Click the green check mark to return to the cockpit.

I dont see any"Fuel selector box" or "Off" option, anyone care to explain it to me?

Sorry for being so dumb! Embarassed

Also, may somone post a screenshot their joystick sensitities please.

I think I have mine configured in correctly, and that may be what is causing my abnormally fast accerlation.

Mine look like this:

I hope someone can help Crying or Very sad

Leave that at default for now.

You may have an imbalance of fuel. This is the only one I could find.
If you have it checked, uncheck it.
If it's unchecked, check it.
See if that makes any difference.

Sorry to hear about your problem. Sad
I don't know about your C-27,
but I would suggest changing your joystick.I've had that a few times and the joystick was old.now I got the X-52.no chance of that happening! Very Happy

Hi CT, sorry to hear your still having problems Crying or Very sad .
Your CONTROLS - SENSITIVITIES are fine, your screenshot shows them at the default settings. The following may seem like dumb-ass questions, but thought I'd ask...........

1. Is your stick calibrated ?

2. Have you done what RadarMan suggested ? ( "Also I would unplug the joystick, delete the software for it and see if you can fly with the keyboard, if so then you problem is the stick". )

3. When you tried everything on the family computer, and encountered the same problems, did you connect and use the same stick ? or use the keyboard ?

It's strange that after 2 copies of FS9, new H/D, and tried on 2 different p.c.'s, that the same problems are caused all the time. I would have said that it's your stick thats bust, but could be wrong.

Up untill you say, you have similiar problems with other aircraft in another post, I was going to suggest that maybe your copy of your Carenado 206 was corrupt in some way, and I was going to send you my copy of the Carenado 206 (Aircraft CFG file) for you to try and see if it solves the problem. But, if your having all these probs with a few craft, the prob seems to be elsewhere, I'd still say it's your stick though.

Fuel selector switches between Left and Right fuel tanks. Not all aircraft have them - if there is one, make sure you keep fuel levels roughly equal in both tanks.

It now sounds as though its something to do with the aircraft cfg or just the aircraft model. The veering to the left is understandable and maybe a slight bank left or right, but not if it is drastic. The only thing I can suggest is a few shots of your panel on take off or a video so everyone can see whats going on. I wouldn't worry about the left tendency on takeoff - its just the slipstream effect. I sometimes have a banking left or right on an aircraft, but like I say, it isn't drastic and is easily corrected Wink

under realism settings, what is your gyro effect set to? in some aircraft like the spartan if that's on top, the power of the propellor does do some annoying things. just a small thought..

Thank you everyone for taking the time to read my message and reply. I am very gratefull to be a member of such a helpful community.

Code: 1. Is your stick calibrated ?
Yes- I have re-calibarated it lots of times, tried different USB slots and used Logitechs clear calibration tool.

2. Have you done what RadarMan suggested ? ( "Also I would unplug the joystick, delete the software for it and see if you can fly with the keyboard, if so then you problem is the stick". )

The stick did not come with any software, but yes I have un-plugged it and tried using the keyboard still having the same effects.

3. When you tried everything on the family computer, and encountered the same problems, did you connect and use the same stick ? or use the keyboard ?

I have never used my joystick on the family PC, or any other gaming device either.

Thanks for explaining about the fuel selector Joelegg, that was proberly what was casuing the iFDG airbuses to turn.

Here are my realisum settings:

By the way- does anyone see some weird black lines on my last settings screenshot above?

I'll take some videos from FS now and post them here later to show those who requested what I am talking about,

Thanks very much for your help so far

I forgot to mention that fuel selector valves only exist in small propellor aircraft such as the Mooney or Beech Baron.

In larger jets, they have a Fuel Cross Feed switch which crosses fuel from the left tank to the other in the event of a fuel leak in one of the tanks to avoid loss of fuel. Otherwise, jets automatically consume fuel from both tanks Wink
