Perhaps you guys can help--I'm having an issue where my landing gear sporadically deploys. The problem doesn't seem to be exclusive to any specific type of aircraft--have any of you experienced this? Any advice on fixing it?
I used to have this problem using my old Microsoft Sidewinder, I think there was a fault in the joystick which caused the landing gear to extend without any input from me. I put it down to heavy usage as the joystick was getting on a bit. Now I have a new Saitek X52 which has no problems.
