Brief description of the issue:
The Flight Design CTSL in real life doesn’t have toe brakes or differential braking; the brakes are controlled by a single lever next to the throttle.
When controlling brakes via the left and right toe brake axes on my Logitech/Saitek rudder pedals, I’ve found that on this plane – at least since SU5, though I can’t rule out that it may have happened before – the brake lever doesn’t always release fully when I release the toe brakes. This causes me to slow down or stop unexpectedly during taxi, and have difficulties restarting.
Testing showed that the left and right brake axes behave differently: the left axis controls the highest 75% of the brake lever, while the right axis controls the lowest 25%. That is, pressing only the right toe brake all the way sets the brake lever to about 25% (modest braking power) and no higher, and releasing it returns to 0%; while pressing only the left toe brake all the way sets the brake lever to about 100%, but releasing it returns to about 25% (the high point of the other pedal).
As a result, if you use both toe brakes together “roughly evenly” but not exactly evenly, sometimes the brake will get stuck at 25% after you release the pedals.
Tapping the right pedal lightly and releasing it returns the brake lever to 0%, and allows you to continue taxiing.
As a workaround, one can assign one toe brake (or another axis, like repurposing a prop RPM lever on your throttle unit that’s not otherwise in use) to both left and right brake axes together. This allows them to combine together up to 100%, and release evenly back to 0%.
Also, using a lever next to your throttle instead of the toe brakes will, in fact, be more true to life!
Provide Screenshot(s)/video(s) of the issue encountered:
didn’t record them, but described above. can take videos if someone thinks it’s important.
Detail steps to reproduce the issue encountered:
- connect Logitech/Saitek rudder pedals
- configure toe brake axes to control left and right brake axes, either directly in MSFS control bindings or via a SimConnect input manager like spad.next (exact same behavior both ways)
- load up Flight Design CTSL at an airport
- taxi around and test both pedals carefully

Build Version # when you first started experiencing this issue:
Noticed in 184.108.40.206. I’ve flown this plane a lot before SU5, and never noticed it before, but I might have missed it.
Are you on the Steam or Microsoft Store version?
