X52 x rotation sticks left

Recommended Posts

Hello folks,I'm using FS9, a Saitek X52, Vista Ultimate x86 with the newest updates. I was flying fine up until yesterday morning, took a break, and tried to fly just a few hours ago, and my joystick rudder axis appeared to keep jamming left in FS9. The airplane was marginally controllable on the ground, but became uncontrollable in the air for obvious reasons. The interesting thing is that the Saitek config utility shows the axis as fine! Not doing anything! I unbound the axis and viewed the airplane from outside, and it was obvious the rudder was in full left deflection until I disabled the joystick and hit NUM-5. Upon reactivating the joystick, the rudder went back to full left deflection.This happened in the Feelthere ERJ v2 as well as the default Cessna. The only changes that have recently occurred were two recent windows updates (One an IE security definition, the other a Windows Defender security definition update, so nothing that would touch controller inputs) which were unrelated.I can't figure out why this is happening. I've tried a system restore and unbinding keys. I'll try reinstalling the Saitek drivers and see if that fixes it.I was going to post on the Saitek forums, but apparently my email address is banned! :( Odd since I've never been there.Thanks for any help in advance,Matt
