Need help with the MSFS. My problems started after the first big update to the program. After that, when I try to fly the 172 (analog glass instruments), the flaps quit working after 5 minutes or so. With the 172 1000G, the avionics and the flaps quit working after 5 minutes or so. The digital instrument panel also quits working no matter what airplane I try to fly. I have made sure that the battery is on and the avionics are on. When the flaps/avionics stop working, I switch to the external camera. On that view the flaps indicator does move up or down, but the flaps on the plane do not move at all.
I used to have a CH Yoke and Rudder Pedals when all this started. I was given a suggestion to disconnect and reconnect the Yoke. That, unfortunately, did not work. It was also suggested to use the Keyboard commands but that did not work either.
I now have installed a Honeycomb Alpha Yoke and Logitech Flight Rudder Pedals. I also use a Saitek X52 Pro for engine thrust. As far as I can tell, everything is set correctly with the Yoke buttons. I have buttons 5 and 6 on the Honeycomb Alpha Yoke assigned to deploy and retract the flaps. I have tried several different settings for the battery and alternator with no success either. I still cannot get the flaps and the avionics to work for more than 5 minutes. I have also re-installed the program but it did not solve the problem. Very frustrating. What am I missing. Please help
