I uninstalled and re-installed FSX twice now. But, we can't seem to fly. At first, I thought it was just difficult military aircraft that I'd downloaded for my boys. But, it seems to happen with the simplest prop plan, too. When you try to take off, it goes way off to the left. It's virtually impossible to take off.
See if either one of these help.
Have you tried calibrating your control settings.
Uh, can you tell me how to do that? Is it in the FSX help menu?
I found it in the Control Panel. It seems to check out. And, now it seems to work, too. So, you're magic. Thanks!
