The spinning heading bug of death

Recommended Posts

Second time I've encountered this.. I'm a big fan of using CTRL DEL or INSERT to set my heading bug and it randomly will freak out and just continue non-stop doing complete  counter/clockwise rotations at about one rotation a second without any input from the keyboard and is just stuck doing that. Has anyone had this happen and if so found a way to stop it without closing the sim?

I had that. I don´t remember exactly what I did to stop it. I think I pressed the opposite key to stop the rotation.

I've had this happen countless times, and I've never figured out how to make it stop.  Everything becomes unresponsive and I have to use task manager to kill the app.  In fact, after I read the post, I went and tried it again and sure enough, the spin of death.  It would also happen to me when I used the knob in the cockpit if I held it too long.  Since the latest update however, I think they fixed it in the cockpit because it only moves one degree at a time, instead of the accelerated increase as when using Shift Insert/Delete too aggressively.  The solution is to just do it VERY SLOWLY.  Not really a solution but live and learn.

Never experienced although I mainly use the mouse wheel.

The few times I used the key binding (in external view) I luckily never had it.

BTW great name for the bug! 😂

Yes have sometimes encountered this. Never found a way to stop this without exiting the sim.

I have found when this happened I had depressed the key for a reasonable time to move the heading bug in excess of 100 degrees. Now I do this in shorter bursts and that appears to eliminate the issue.
