Just got the MS FS2020 on a high-end gaming computer and have the Saitek yoke and controls and the pedals. When I am running the descent on the simulator, the Saitek controls suddenly seem to disconnect from the sim and the plane crashes. I have updated all of the drivers, checked all the controls before the flight but, every time, it stops working and the plane crashes.
can anyone tell me what or why this is happening?
Try cheanging it to a different USB outlet on your computer not on a periferal USB hub.
I have the same setup and even when plugged in sometimes it just dies.
