The other day I went into FSX and tried to start a free flight and noticed the plane wasn't throttling up with any noticeable thrust. I checked my brakes but I've never had any default setting where the parking brake is activated. Yet, it acts like that's exactly the problem.
However, what's the command to de-activate the parking brake? I see Ctrl + to set, but what is it to release? All the planes are acting the same way. I haven't changed anything in the config sets lately. The only thing I've added is Real Flight G4.5 (RC sim).
Could that inadvertantly effect FSX? It just seems "off".
Thanks for any help or suggestions...
It's control plus the period to set parking brake, and ( period ) to apply and release brakes.
Yeah, I know about the period to brake, but I've tried every combination and it still is messed up.
Are you using peddels
Nope, I'm using the Extreme 3D Pro stick with twist control for the rudders.
If you haven't assigned any controls to your stick inside the control panel then try resetting to default, then close out of the sim, and reboot your pc, go back in and see if it still happens. I say this because there have been occasions when I start FSX and there has been updates running in background when I didn't know it and had the same issues as you.
The BellJetRanger doesn't throttle up for me.
