Hi all,

When i start P3D, everytime it sets my flaps at around halfway down and sets my spoilers completely deployed. I have set both the flap and Spoilers axis to a corresponding throttle on my Saitek Throttle Quadrant. When flying, my flaps axis will only lower the flaps, but not raise them. And even though it deploys them, it doesn't deploy them completely(about two notches from fully deployed). This also happens with my spoilers axis. They only deploy when i move the spoiler axis. I cant get either to retract without using the kepyboard assignment. I have tried calibrating my yoke and throttle quadrant. Didn't help at all. Any ideas?

Hi.....you need to ensure the levers have the correct sensitivity and null zone settings. On the calibration page, select advanced controls. Ensure that all the axes set to your levers are at 100% sensitivity and 0% null zone.

Also make sure you have the latest drivers and an entry in exe.xml
