Just down loaded X Plane 10  demo and had a quick flight (very nice) So adjusted to Full Screen Res and now the left/right arrows keys don't work (Up/Down are fine). Set it back to default and still the same.

Any ideas please or is there a set all to defaults function I can use while learning product?

many thanks imk

Hi imk,

It might be the view you're using. The default view is 2D panel, and if the screen is wide enough to show the full panel, the left/right arrows won't do anything. Try switching to 3D cockpit (shift + 9). You can make that the default in the rendering settings window, but some aircraft may not have a 3D panel so it could sometimes look bad.

Hello jroberts

Yes switching to 3D worked, many thanks!

AC was a BC so cockpit was wide enough, also the up/down keys worked but not left right so think I had messed up something in my novice fiddling.

Being flying FSX for while so thought I'd try x-plane and well really nice. Tried the SR71, wow crashed twice on take-off but third time pulled at 180 kts and away she went, mmmm tricky little filly.

BTW if anyone interested running it on Q87M-E, i5-4670, 8gb ram and tweaked BIOS to give dedicated 1GB to HD4600 and runs really well.

Again many thanks imk
