    Keyboard Rudder Control Problem on FSX

    Hi I'm new to FSX and I'm still using the keyboard to control. I know that left rudder is 0 on the number pad and right is Enter. Problem is that 0 on my number pad doesn't give me left rudder. Instead of left rudder it brings up the cockpit view. I tried to recalibrate the keyboard controls, and FSX recognizes my 0 key as the right key. So I'm stumped. Anyone else had this problem or know a solution? I need a left rudder control thanks!

    Do the rest of the keyboard's "control surface" commands work properly? Default plane? Control Axis keyboard Rudder sensitivity?...Don

    Thanks for the reply. As far as I know the other keys work correctly. Though I'm a total newbie, and I don't know nearly all of the flight controls. the other keys on the number pad to the right (1-9) control different views, which I think may be wrong, since someone said that the number 5 on the keypad should level your rudders out, but my number 5 gives me a view of the rear interior of the plane. Very confusing. My arrow keys work correctly and my F1-F4 keys are where they should be. It just seems that some of the keys are off.

    For the "Keypad" to work for your control surfaces turn "Numlock" Off.

    In the file library is a *.pdf chart for FSX default commands. "FSX Keyboard Commands", fsxkypml.zip
    "FSX Default Keyboard Assignments", kba-dcbv1.zip, opens with your browser(*.html) and includes a list of "unused" keys to help with customizing your assignments...Don

    Thanks Don I'll give it a try

    Everything's working well now Don thanks. I was under the assumption that with the number lock off the number keys wouldn't work! Thanks again!

    I have a familiar problem. Once i go onto fsx, and use whatever other aircraft, when i go into the simulating, then once i pushback my plane when i try to taxi on the rudder what happens is after a few yaws to the left and right, i put it to one side, and when i try to yaw the rudder to the other side, it doesn't do anything. I have numlock off all the time.

Installed on 250 Gb (D. FS9 and FSX Acceleration (locked at 30 FPS).
    If you had read the pior posts you would have your answer. What is happening is that you press a key to yaw 5 times. To yaw the other direction would take presses of the other key 5 times to center (ie: undo the other yaw). The answer, of course, is you need to press the '5' key to center your controls. THEN press key to yaw in whatever direction you want. But the definitive 'solution' is for both of you to get a cheap (2nd hand store, ebay) joystick with twist grip. Your flying enjoyment would increase immensely.
