MD8-Q400 ailerons dont work..?

Recommended Posts

I have the dash8q400 installed for p3dv4. It was working great for many hours, and then all of a sudden out of no where the ailerons wont work any more. Gee wizz I wish I had been more stringent with my pre-flight checks so I didnt crash into the Innsbruck mountain side... :)

 

In any case, all my other airplanes are fine. I can move the elevator and rudder as normal, but the ailerons dont work. I have checked the config app and reset any faults that might have been. I've also checked the config app to see if my joystick aileron axis is registering, and yes it is indeed showing up and moving just fine there. I have sent Majestic an email asking for an invitation to join their forum (kinda posh isnt it?), but untill then I'd love for any one with some experience with this issue to chime in :)

What I did so far:

* Numerous restarts of the simulator
* Numerous reconfigurations of the aircraft through the config app to set nose wheel steering to mouse and to ailerons.
* Uninstalled the aircraft and used CC cleaner afterwards and then a reboot before reinstallation.

Might I just add that I currenly dont have any antivirus because of another addon that I want to use gives false positives on my Bit Defender. Meaning, it cant be my antivirus that is interfering.

Are you using the standard controls or the 125hz controls?  I’ve had a lot of issues with the 125hz controls staying enabled.

I dont know what that means..?  I have a Logitech Extreme 3d Pro (piece of word not allowed really - getting new one for xmas), thats all I know :)

You don't per chance, have the gust lock on.  The black bar in front of the throttles.  I might have tried to take off that way once, but I won't admit it.  :biggrin:  I thought that it wouldn't hurt to ask.

It’s a different way of having your controls interface with the sim.  If you didn’t enable it though not to worry...it takes a bit of effort to enable.

but the ailerons dont work

I have more or less the same... On my system they visiually do not move (neither in the cockpit controls display)
but they do operate. It hasn't bothered me enough yet to investigate. My guess it has something to do with assigning the axis through FSUIPC.
BTW: I'm not using the 125Hz functionality
