F-14 strange behaviour

Recommended Posts

Friends,

I switched to P3DV4 and downloaded and installed the 64-Bit Version of the Aerosoft F-14 X.

I managed to fly this bird in P3D V3 after some beginners problems quite well. Today after installing the 64-Bit Version I ran into some problems.

 

First of all is that I don't know how to set "Trim Elevator Up / down" to Joystick Buttons. I simply cannot find the right P3D Event to change buttons/ keystrokes.

 

Before start I usually walk through checklist and get all checkmarks. When going to full throttle the displays of my F-14 all go dark and I cannot see anything but nevertheless the bird gains speed. I can take off, but after a short while I loose control of the cat, and it starts to spin around. I cannot see a problem, prolly stabs turn off as well when the displays and HUD turn black?!

 

Any ideas what is happening with my sim?

I gave it another try and started the Sim in "Ready to taxi" mode. The F-14 takes off without any problem. The HUD and monitors stay on and the jet behaves as expected. I don't know what went wrong while running through the Checklist.

I give it another shot starting for a carriers deck to see if I accidentially turned something off and hope the monitors keep working.

I really had nothing for you since you mentioned the use of the checklist (thumbs up). The "not turning on the oxygen" was a common missed item when the Cat first came out.

Thanks for your help. Could you please look up which keystroke you set for trimming the elevation up/down? 

Or do you use the keys instead of joystick buttons?

Which joystick do you have? Have you tried any other button? Some buttons can not be used for functions like trim.

Running TM Warthog with registered copy of FSUIPC if that helps. The standard trim hat for pitch/roll axis is binded there. Trim is a must have in this beast!
