Not sure exactly what I did but I probably had to many game controlers and devices pluged in at once.

I took off and my stick was not responding very well. The mouse was working ok, but when I looked down at my keyboard for the escape key the plane nose dived strait into the ground.

re boot, try it again.

same effect, only this time I realized what was going on and a little smirk curled on my lips.
My Track IR was running HOTAS and when I looked the plane manuverd. I played with this for a while and actually got the plane on the ground.

LOL http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif I stoped the game to see how this was happening and when I opened the controls menue everything looked normal, back to the game and the enomally was gone.

I havnt been able to recreate that since but I thought I'd share the expieraince here anyway.

Howdy Icarus,

Long time, no see. Hope things are well up there & good luck to the Badgers this year.

This story reminds me of the Clint Eastwood movie (Firefox or something like that?) in which he's assigned to steal a Russian jet that operates mostly by thought and head movement control.

So apparently you've stumbled upon this top secret technology! Would be pretty interesting to fly IL entirely by head movement coupled with voice command.
