I had problems with FS9 recently - the whole application would shut down and return to windows whilst in mid-flight. After reading the Microsoft FS9 trouble shooting (on their website) I un-installed FS9 completely and also removed all freeware (add-ons) that I had added, which was a pain.
Microsoft were basically saying that if you have added free-ware or other add-ons then sometimes it can cause conflict with FS9, and stop it working as it should.
After re-installing FS9 it worked fine. When taxiing or beginning the take-off roll, I had similar problems with controlling the aircraft - to solve it I centred the rudder before moving off (5 on the keypad - with Num Lock off).
