Landing Gear Won't Stay Down...hmmm....

Recommended Posts

Hello all... just wondering if anyone has had an issue with the landing gear in this plane...when the airplane is on the ground, I can't keep my gear to stay locked in the "gear down" position... keeps popping up to the middle locked position... Does same thing during a flight... I've tried to uninstall and install again... no joy... any suggestions? Also tried "G" and "Ctrl+G" commands... Thanks in advance...William

Sounds like something is constantly triggering the G key. I had a similar thing when suddenly in flight the flap handle started a life on its own. Took me a while to figure what caused this, finally it appeared to be a faulty button on my ancient Saitek P8000 pad..

Have the same with one button on my CH throttle quadrant. When i assign a function to it, in this case flaps decr, it will also trigger ther gear lever to the OFF position. There is nothing else assignef to it anywherr, I checked. Very strange. I now just do not use that button.

Thanks for the replies guys... I have disabled the "G" key and assigned the gear to a button... seems to have handled the issue...

No not clicking in gear area... Just mapped gear to FSUIPC4(registered version) ... seems to be addressing the issue....but still a b it touch and go... separate keys for "gear up = G" and "gear down -CTL+G"

Thought that would handle it but still no joy... landing gear simply won't stay down(on ground or in flight)... there's got to be a conflict somewhere...lol

You need only to map for gear up/down not one key for up and one key for down. If you look at the key commands for the ngx there is only one option.
