Hi everyone.

I have encountered a massive problem with FS which makes it completely unusable for me and I really hope someone reading this will have an answer and thank you all for taking the time to have a look anyhoo.

Basically whichever a/c I select to "fly now" the only control I have is the elevator. Throttles, ailerons and rudder act as if they are receiving hundreds of different inputs a second and are "fluttery". I've tried two controllers (MSFFB2 and the Speedlink Black Widow) both with exactly the same issue so I'm deducing the problem's with FS2004...

I was running FS2004 with the add-ons: Air Hauler, Airline Pilot, the Just Flight Dash 8-300 pack and the ABACUS Airbus Fleet pack (though I have now uninstalled all of these in attempt to fix the problem); I'm running FS2004 with the 9.1 update (though it was doing this before I updated) in windows 7 Home Edition as an administrator (and in compatibility mode of XP (SP2)), and the latest FSUIPC version of 3.999z8 (again it was doing this before I updated). I previously had FS2004 in the X86/program files folder but after reading some posts (I've been to several forums looking for similar posts) I subsequently uninstalled and reinstalled in a separate folder in the c: drive but again to no avail.

I'm now at my wits end, it could well be something very simple that I'm doing/not doing but as it was working perfectly well a few months ago (I've been away from sim'ing for a while) I can't understand it.

Thanks in advance,

Hey Steve, 

Not sure I can help but is this with every aircraft, default and addon? 

Maybe a callibration issue or something with your hardware? Have you tried with other/keyboard controls? 

Just some ideas

I think I'd start by unplugging all the hardware controls (joystick, yoke, pedals, etc.), including other USB connected devices that may not have anything to do with FS, and then re-introduce them one at a time.  Also try different USB ports and if you're using a hub, get it out of there and plug the hardware items directly into the PC USB ports.   If the behavior doesn't change by removing a hub, chances are the hub is not the problem.

Not sure this will do any good but you have to start somewhere and eliminating hardware issues sounds like a good place to start.

Also, try turning on the mouse yoke option in FS and see if that will work.
