Sim Skunk Works F-104 Rudder/Nosewheel steering issue

Recommended Posts


I recently acquired the SSW F-104S.

I have Saitek pedals and CH Combatstick controllers.

I am able to get the F-104 aircraft started and all control surfaces are responding to control inputs apart from the rudder.

Additionally (and I am not sure if this is linked) the nosewheel steering does not work.

As per SSW instructions the nosewheel steering is supposedly activated via the "toggle launch bar" command - which I have assigned to a button on my

Combatstick via FSUIPC.

I have checked other of my aircraft (Aerosoft F-16A / RealAir Spitfire) and their rudders are functioning normally.

SSW advised my that there is a "problem with Saitek controllers" but that should be overcome by making the assignments via FSUIPC rather than via FSX.

Any ideas/advice as to cause / solution would be appreciated.
