Sometimes when I play online and typing to players some, I get stuck outside my plane. I start in cockpit hit I to start nothing happens. I hit f2 for external and I switch to outside view of ANOTHER plane never to return to mine. f1 wont work. WTF, this is irritating me to death. It may have something to do with the ~ key. Any ideas. Sorry if this is obvious to some but I must confess ignorance here.

Are you bumping the Ctrl button ?

Crtl button? Possibly, I hit alot of keys in the panic of getting shot up. Why whats that do?

Do you use a programmable joystick? If so, the program may be holding down a key, perhaps shift, ctrl or alt. Try starting the game without your joystick software running.

ctrl-F2 does switch to an external view of another plane. But, f1 should get you back inside yours.

This sounds quite similar to a problem I used to have.

If I remember correctly, moving my controllers (CH Stick/Throttle/Pedals) from my powered hub to the mobo USB ports corrected this (and some other issues as well).
