Im a newbie here. I can turn on my delta gliders engine using ctrl+ . It runs off the landing strip. I cant lift it off the ground. Guide says pull the stick. I dont know what it is. Pressing number 2 key doesnt work either. Please hel.

That would be the '2' key on the numberpad.

Numberpad '8' for pitchdown, '2' for pitchup, '4' and '6' for left and right bank respectively. Also make sure to use the numberpad '/' key to toggle between rotation and translation modes. Take-off would of course require rotation mode.

Hope this helps. :)

Welcome to the forums!
Yes the numpad is your "flight stick" and can be pretty clunky to use until you get accustomed to it. I've got a cheap joystick that I use for flight in "atmo", then stick to the keyboard once I'm in orbit.

I don't have joysticks, but can fly the Glider nonetheless. Just press and hold the keypad number "2" when you are at 100 m/s. :)

Also, @Kishore welcome to the forum. 👋
