Sick and tired of banking

I hope someone can tell me how to fix this.

First of all:
I fly with keyboard and mouse
I hardly fly inside the cockpit, I mainly land inside the cockpit as it is not as easy to do it from the outside view as it is in P3D
I don’t like touching anything inside the cockpit, no controls
I basically use F1 to F8 and arrows plus breaks that’s all I need and want

So when I take off and land all goes well but if I simply decide to go back to the runway and simply take off the planes tend to bank either side, whatever it choses. I usually get it straight by pressing 5 but sometimes it continues banking.
Also happens if you start at the gate. You turn it on by control E and then hit the runway and when taking off it is almost impossible to flight it straight forward.
If you decide to start the flight over a point of insterest all goes well if you simply fly straight but you decide to turn then you can’t control it, it constantly banks until you give you

I’m sick of that issue

Does anybody know how to “reset” the stuff to fly straight?

Thanks
Carlos

Could the banking be caused by a certain natural phenomenon that we tend to call ‘crosswind’? :wink:

1 Like

Definitely not. Concerning aerodynamics & performance, crosswind doesn’t exist.
Hence it has no effect on an aircraft in flight.

Crosswind only exits if ground is a factor = navigation.

I tried using a keyboard when I first downloaded the game. I quickly switched to an XBox controller and flying became fun.

A single plausible reason would be interesting.
E.g. you can’t fly any prop driven planes with a keyboard (without assistance)

I’ve never felt comfortable with the idea of a joysrick
I’m very used to fly with keyboard and mouse in all sims
I just have an issue with the banking for which I requested assistance for
But thanks anyway for your imput

@GhostlyFrend
Not really as it is an issue that keeps the plane banking until it crashes

Would you mind sharing your experienc/reasons?
I’m used to have my hands busy, rather than just one hand on a stick
Why do you find it more fun? How does it improve the flying?
Does it offer a better sense?
As I said I’m so used to the keyboard that I doubt I could get used to a joystick but if advantages or reasons are worthy (as you have had also a keyboard) I wouldn’t mind giving a try. I’ts just that I have not felt the need for it

@Sunday748 N6722C
Yes you are right. For example F5 lower the aileron. F6 gets it back. F8 is full aileron etc
The plane from outside sims to be straight that is what is odd to me.
This happens if you land and take off again. Never when you start at the very first time.
I dont set anything inside the cockpit as the AP you said. Does this is set up “automatically or default” than maybe I need to turn it off?
This might sound weird to you but what I actually like of the game is to see the plane flying over a nice landscape or city, I’m not into the “pilot feeling” I am a landscape pilot jaja if such thing exists so not too prepared on controls, just basic stuff
For example this video I made all with keyboard, I have made several so you can see the behaviour of the plane: Microsoft Flight Simulator, El Salvador (País de impresionantes contrastes) - YouTube

For an Ace Combat like flying game a keyboard might be sufficient, but as @anon62478633 mentioned, these are at least a few reasons why you need a joystick.

E.g. flaring with a keyboard can’t be even remotely compared to flaring with (even a cheap one) a joystick, which provides the required precise control.

A joystick increases realism and immersion by at least a factor of 10.

First of all, I never flown a sim with keyboard inputs. Can’t imagine how it works. But I don’t know how you fly a plane smooth because you just pushing keys to set ailerons I.e. That means, in my idea, you push a given key very often to set ailerons and than you have to push another key to go back all the way to neutral or maybe a different key to reset ailerons to neutral.

What happens maybe, the sim didn’t recognize your input and you stay at a given aileron state which means, when you set AP, It must Bank the Aircraft to fly straight because you still give aileron input.

How does the Plane looks from outside? Can you see the control surfaces in neutral when you bank?

Anyway, try to fly with a Yoke or stick and throttle levers and rudder pedals. That’s a total different way to fly and it’s definitely a more „natural“ way to fly.

At least grab a Xbox Controller (newer bluetooth enabled version if possible) if you cant afford a stick/yoke setup. MSFS natively supports them and other than ±10 stick(s) deadzone they are ready to fly.

Edit:
I have a VKB Gladiator NXT Premium, Thrustmaster Warthog, pedals, etc and yet prefer to kick back with a Xbox Controller and mouse in MSFS.

Hi, Thrustmaster is a great brand…I have an T160000 or something like that Joystick That works wonders…:slight_smile:

I can’t type. I have typed on a lot on typewriters and later keyboards for many decades and I still have to use the hunt-&-peck method and have to be looking at the keys. I can pick up any controller, since the first electronic games and be using them without looking in minutes.

With MSFS I find that I use three devices to fly:

  • Basically, the XBox controller has two thumb sticks that can control four axis functions: climb/desend, turn right/left; camera up/down, camera left right. It has buttons that alone can throttle up, throttle down, brake, switch cockpit to outside view, rudder right, rudder left, deploy flaps, retract flaps, etc. Used together they can set parking brakes, etc. And, you can go into settings and change how the they work, if desired the same as you can for the keyboard assignments.
  • Note that I also use the keyboard for a few infrequent commands like quickly turning on lights.
  • I also use the mouse, primarily for point at and activating the MANY in-cockpit knobs, switches, levers, and even keys.
    It is more fun flying because I seldom have to look down at the keyboard, the thumb sticks offer more control of steering the plane and camera, and I make less errors then I would with keys. (I used to use whiteout a lot when typing.)

Sorry dude…

i stopped reading your post by the line…
“i fly with keyobard and mouse”

Sorry man, play something that requires less complex inputs… you should not be playing a complex simulator without at least a cheap joystick.

Maybe try tetris… :blue_heart:

@Acuario9383 I’ve noticed banking after takeoff. It happens if you try to turn and take off right after you have landed. The cause is not aeleron, but the near stall on takeoff as a result of leaving elevator and flaps up together. The airplane goes up far too early. You’ll take off at low airspeed, steep up and out of control… you bank and crash, because you left the rudder on one side… or some other small deviation, e.g. if you did a curved landing and left the aeleron on one side.

You can play with keyboard and mouse… even with just keyboard… but when you have landed somewhere, it’s a good idea to clear the runway, taxi somewhere and check your controls before taking off again. Just leave the cockpit (go external camera) and put your elevator, aeleron and rudder in neutral position. Then go back in and take off again.

When you’re banking on the ground and nearly crash a wing, give it some aeleron to the other side and tap the rudder a few times. It will keep your wing tip off the ground and allow the aircraft to find back horizontal balance.

The post are too long to read.

I have the Thrust Master Flight stick T.16000 and use it, it is great.

I have also tried using the keyboard keys on the numeric pad.

As you say, I was getting no response to these keys on a WT CJ4.

I’m sorry but this makes zero sense. I’ve never been comfortable with the thought of killing myself while doing aerobatics but it sure has heck never stopped me from doing it.

FS 2020 is meant to be flown with a mix of analog and digital inputs. Refusing to use the proper controller because you’re not comfortable with the idea is silly. Buy a simple X-box controller and stop using FS 2020 as an expensive Bing maps interface.

Maybe, you want to go to Options, Assistance and “Assisted Yoke”.

Sorry, but using a flight simulator without clever controls makes no sense.

There are also inexpensive joysticks that are always better than a keyboard and mouse. There’s no more to talk about…

What are your realism settings? The sim likes to try to simulate flying as closely as possible to reality. You may want to adjust realism settings/switch on assists, which should make flying straight much easier.
