Flight controls freeze when using right-click for panning view

This issue has been around for quite a long time and it bugs me a lot while I’m moving on the ground.

Are you using Developer Mode or made changes in it?


Have you disabled/removed all your mods and addons?


Brief description of the issue:

See title. The flight controls freeze in their position whenever you use freelook (so when panning view in cockpit or external view using right-mouse click. Using right mouse again unlocks the controls again.

Provide Screenshot(s)/video(s) of the issue encountered:

Not possible.

Detailed steps to reproduce the issue encountered:

Start sim, any aircraft will do, start taxing, when in a turn on the ground, using right mouse button to look around, see how controls will lock.

PC specs and/or peripheral set up if relevant:

I use Logitech rudder pedals, this is where I encounter most of the problems although I cannot confiirm it has anything to do with the hardware.

Build Version # when you first started experiencing this issue:
