Issues with my Saitek yoke not keeping pitch and FS2004 [WITH VIDEO]

Recommended Posts

Hello,In FS2004 Lesson 1 your goal is to fly straight and level, there is a portion of the lesson where you are asked to pull back on the yoke and pitch the nose up, and then push forward and pitch the nose down...this is where I run into issues.


Here is a video of my lesson as I talking about. At 2:15 the instructor tells me to pull back on the yoke and hold it to pitch the nose up, you can see at 2:38 the nose begins pitch down on its own. I continue to hold the yoke back until the instructor tells me otherwise at 3:02, at this point I push it forward s instructed to pitch the nose down and hold until 3:40 when he tells me to return the joystiq to center, you can see the nose pitches up on its own, similar to before. At 3:40 I let go of to yoke to return it to center, but the plane has a hard time finding level.Can someone confirm that this isnt pilot error and is a joystiq error?Thanks!

You may have a trim problem rather than a yoke issue.

Just watched your video. Maybe not a trim problem.
