I'm experiencing a rather odd problem with my mouse wheel mapped to flaps. I've assigned the wheel to control flaps thru Controls HOTAS np but would but would like to also still use the "f" and "v" keys for pre-set flap positions. Whenever I use the "f" or "v" keys and then simply move the mouse to view the online map or whatever, the flaps automatically return to their current position mapped on the wheel even though I haven't moved the mouse wheel. I recognize a work around is to not ever use the "f" or "v" key, but it seems to me that I should be able to use both. I'm using a very basic Gateway supplied logitech optical mouse and XP Home. Anyone else run into this problem and can suggest a fix? Thanks and S!
