I'm pretty sure there's some sort of a keyboard command that does that. I don't recall specifically, but I think it's something like Ctrl+Shift+I.

FYI- Ailerons control roll (left to right, i.e. wingtips up and down) while elevators control pitch (nose up and down) and the rudder controls yaw (nose left to right.) Your elevators are reversed Very Happy

I believe there's a checkbox under the control settings menu to reverse the axis. It's been awhile since I've messed with FSX so I can't give you a step by step walkthrough, but it should be under options, then controls, axes, and you may have to turn on an advanced option. Just look for a box that says "invert Y axis" and uncheck it.

Try recalibrating in the settings menu.
If that doesn't do it download the latest software from the manufacturers site.
Delete the old software and install the new.
