It's normal.

Keypad keys alone are RCS.
CTRL & keypad keys reduce RCS output by some percentage (maybe they only output 10% thrust, I don't remember), to be very precise for those "extra delicate" manoeuvers.

I mean that when I tap control, a small amount of rcs thrust is applied to random linear rcs groups continuously. I have no way to stop the thrusters from firing.

This plugin has great potential, but there are a few downsides:

(1) It mixes English with another language (I think it's German). Making it all in English and making another version all in the other language, or making a language option, would be a great improvement.

(2) On some controllers, not all of the axis are available. For example, the X52 has seven axis not counting the built-in mouse X and Y axis. But this plugin only registers six axis at most. I suggest making this thing scan the controllers to get a list of all of the axis that the controller uses.

Would it be possible for me to configure this so as to operate two sticks, one for rotation and the other for translation (as in Soyuz)?

I tried installing this is 2006-P1 and get an error message

"Modules/FlyByWire/FlyByWireCore.dll not found. Check installation"

When I tried to activate the FlyByWire Module.

The version that is on Orbit Hanger Mods is 0.9.1 beta. Whereas all the installation documentation seems to be written for version 0.9. In the installation directions state to unzip to main Orbiter directory while preserving the directory structure. However due to the way the zip file was constructed, it would end up with all the files being placed in a subdirectory called "0.9.1 beta". i.e. the FlyByWireCore.dll would end up in the main orbiter directory/0.9.1 beta/Modules/FlyByWire/FlyByWireCore.dll

That does not seem right, so I installed all the files to where I believe they should be located at. For example I moved FlyByWireCore.dll to main orbiter directory/Modules/FlyByWire/FlyByWireCore.dll

However that got me the error message listed above. I then tried to unzip per the instructions to the main orbiter directory which did install everything into a "0.9.1 beta" subdirectory, but I still get the same error.

The FlyByWire does show up on the Extra tab, but when I try to edit the configure, orbiter shuts down.

Any ideas? Has anyone successfully installed the 0.9.1 beta version? Does anyone have the 0.9 version I could try?

Edit - - - - - - - - - - - -

I figured out my installation issue. I did not copy the SDL.dll file to my root orbiter directory. Note you will not be able to unzip to main orbiter directory as instructed for the 0.9.1 beta version. You will need to manually install all the files to their proper directories.

My FBW 0.9.1 beta doesn't work at all any more. It shows the joysticks (Saitek X56 HOTAS) but no axis options to program. This is in Orbiter 2016. Yes, I've reinstalled all drivers, the module for FBW. I think some software update on the joystick makes it non-compatible with FBW now.

E-trexer, there will have any development thread of the standalone FBW for Orbiter 2016.

This FBW does not work with Orbiter 2016.
