Controls problem with X-Plane version 10.51r1

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Aileron, rudder and elevator controls do not deflect with the latest X-Plane version 10.51r1.

 

Throttles and nose wheel steering do work.

 

My other aircraft work ok.

 

Anyone else with this problem?

Yes. Everyone who doesn't disengage the gust lock.

 

Make sure to run the tutorials and read through the Intro Manual.

Hi,

 

Thanks for the response.

 

Most X-Plane aircraft are in flying condition when setting up runway/10 or 5 miles out or setting altitude/speed/heading. For quick ils approaches or taking a screen shot of an interesting new paint scheme it is convenient.

 

So much great work has been done on the DC-6 I am reluctant to recommend a flyable aircraft option with controls unlocked when instant flight is selected. Thanks.

Earlier I mentioned reading the intro manual. Please do so with specific reference to the scenario manager.

Interesting. "In flying condition" in this context means ready for take off, which the DC-6B is not obviously.  I think it is more realistic to think of her as simply engines already started, nothing more. Fuel and payload may require adjustments, takeoff flaps set, gust lock released (it is taxied with gust lock on by the way), water configured, etc.  This is too complex of an aircraft to set up ready to fly and none has complained of this except you.

Would be solved by using the Scenario Manager, really.
