When escaping to the menu, on return to flight the flaps extend all the way every time

Bug: Whenever I hit ESC to pause the game & open the menu, when I return to the flight the aircraft’s flaps will always extend to their maximum deflection. Has anyone else encountered this?

I’ve been seeing this since a bit before SU5 came out (I had a huge issue installing that update & didn’t have the sim fully installed again until recently).

I’m starting to suspect a controller issue, I’m using the Thrustmaster Airbus sidestick since this summer. I’ll check it with the Logitech 3D Extreme Pro I have packed away somewhere instead of the to see if it still ocurrs whenI’m using that.

Microsoft Store version on PC
