Gear randomly extends

Recommended Posts

Ive been a long time PMDG 737 user but in the last week my landing gear randomly extends during flight. Happened a few days ago and I thought I must have bumped the key. Then today it happened again. I put the gear back up and 5 minutes later is down again. I have also been using Windows10 for almost a year with out a problem but I updated to the anniversary  edition about the same time I started getting this gear problem.  Anyone else experience it?

Hi,

I had that issue ones and found out that FSX had re-mapped a key for the gear on one of my joystick. Double check that none of your hardware has any button mapped to gear in the FSX settings.

Only time I've seen this is with hardware sending spikes. This can also happen if the hardware isn't getting enough voltage.

I will play around some and see if I can solve it.

So I moved my controllers from a powered USB hub and plugged them directly into my tower and it seems to have solved the issue.  Thanks for the advice!
