    PARKING BRAKE IN FSX STEAM

    Post by G-GMDH on Sat Jul 16, 2016 10:27 pm

    I decided to have a gentle flight out of EGFE as I haven't used FSX for a few days. Well one hour later with my parking brake stuck ON, I have reset controls to default, removed the fsx.cfg folder and let it build a new one and the parking brake refuses to be released? This happens in ALL aircraft by the way!

    Any ideas as I'm literally STUCK!!!!!

    Cheers, Mike.

    Are you using a rudder? If so have you reversed the toe brakes in the settings panel..

    Tick the toe brake as unticked they are always on..

    Thanks for your help James. My home made rudder pedals have no toe brakes.

    I eventually found what was causing the problem, nothing to do with FSX.

    I have recently rekindled my interests in RC flying and I had installed VJOY which converts the PCM from the transmitter to a pretend joystick to then control the planes in the simulator.


    So into Control Panel in my PC, then Device Manager, then Human Interface Devices and Disable VJOY.

    So eventually very late last night had an enjoyable flight around Pembrokeshire.

    Cheers, Mike.
