Ok, I need some help guys. I am running FS2k and have been having some problems with it. First, at seems like all my aircraft have tail heavy problems but I can;t figure out why. As soon as I load up the game and have say a 777 or a cessna 172 rolling down the runway, the plane will start to rotate on its own way before before V1. The 777 starts rotating around 60-70Kts. I dont even have the autopilot settings set for altitude or anything so it cant be that. Also when I am in flight and dont have the autopilot set the planes starts to nose up very sharply, as if it thinks its a rocket or something.I have to keep holding the joystick way forward just to keep the plane level. Does anyone know why this is happening?
Now another problem I am having is with the slew mode. I recently reinstalled the game on my pc and before when I wold go in slew mode to move the plane around, i was able to rotate the plane around by using the rudder movements on my joystick. Now all i can do is move front and back, and side to side. So now I can position my planes anyway I need to
Now the third problem I've been having is steering the jets around the ground. I use the rudder controls on my sidewinder joystick and the plane doesnt seem to want to turn and sometimes it even turns the opposite way! Someone please help me!!! agghhhhhhhh

About your first question: have you checked the elevator trim, to make sure it's not all the way up?

ok, the rotating problem will be either the calibration of your joystick or it is the elevator trim that is sit to up, on the right nummeric keypad press 5 to reset everything again.

forthe slew mode, i dont know by heart what the button is butin slew mode try your F5/6/7/8 keys

for the ruddercontrol problems on the ground: go to aircraft/realism settings and enable autorudder, now you have controls on the ground just by twisting your joystick, make sure again u have no rudder trim.

I hope i helped u out a bit, if not, post here again your question

For your 1st question, try hitting "7" on your num pad several times or hold it down. Make sure your num lock light is off first!
For your 3rd question, make sure all of your engines are on! This happens to me sometimes. All you have to do is hit ctrl+e and your other engine will be started. If not hit ctrl+f4+shift and then ctrl+e.
Try that.

Hey,

The main problem, I think, is the plane not being trimmed properly. I think you really have to adjust the elevator trim. Especially during flight so you can relieve most of the forward pressure on the joystick. I am not exactly sure what buttons to press on the keyboard but just look up "trim." Without properly trimming the a/c it can be very difficult to fly.

Hope this helps,

-Nick

Most likely it is indeed trim, or else the callibration of your control (stick/controller) is wrong. Check callibration first, especially if it happens with all aircraft.

As was already mentioned, there might be a problem with your joystick calibration. Normally, if your joystick is well-calibrated, FS will perceive that, when the joystick is in neutral stand, you are not applying back pressure or so.

However, if the joystick isn't calibrated, then, even when you're not touching the joystick, FS might think that you're applying back pressure and try to increase the aircraft's AOA and, for instance, takeoff.

Read your joystick's manual. You should be able to calibrate it using some sort of software that came with it. If that doesn't work, let us know. But, let's hope this works!

I had no problem at all calibrating my joystick (MS Sidewinder Pro). I connected the joystick, installed the software, and the joystick was allready well-calibrated.

Gobind, don't be too sure about that. Ever tried a joystick? It's fun, you know!!

But hey, if you're used to the keyboard, that's fine by me...  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
