flying with the keyboard (FS2004)

I am trying to figure out how to center the stick vertically using keyboard controls. There is a center for yaw and bank (num 5) but how do I know where to center the elevators? How does the keyboard behave with respect to pitch? For instance does the stick automatically center slowly
after pressing (num 😎 several times, or does it stay there?

Your much better off with a joystick but you can print out the keyboard commands, they do come in handy.
I did it long ago.

whether stick or keyboard, set one input to elevator trim up, and another input to elevator trim down in settings > controls > assignments. Use these in correlation with your airspeed, and you should be able to enjoy level flight. 😎

Sorry but you'll never fly properly with the keyboard....

I persistently tired (being an eighties boy and having never failed with my ZX spectrum) but failed miserably Crying or Very sad

i have CH yoke and rudder pedals...

HIGHLY recommended... it was worth every penny. 😎

but even if you dont want all that.. a joystick would do.. flying by the keyboard isn't just impossibly difficult, but it's also very un-realistic.

after i got the yoke and pedals i couldnt believe what i had been missing... i can never go back to keyboarding in flightsim, lol

..the difference is enourmous, that's all i can say

😀 good luck with what you decide 👍
