Thanks guys. Seems to work as expected thus evening. Probably was a button-binding issue, the pickle binding may have 'fallen off.' The control bindings are a bit of a headache in this otherwise impressive sim.
Not sure what you meant about "falling off", but yes, control mapping is kinda primitive in Falcon. Best to find a well-used profile and work with that. What HOTAS/joystick are you using?
Can you point me to something better? video or written would be fine. I have browsed the the manuals and the Dash 1 pdf, but Tanit's videos are the only comprehensible step-by-step instructions I've found so far that are specifically for BMS.
Unfortunately, this is where Falcon falls seriously short. DCS A10C, for instance, has light-years-better tutorials both from the devs (Wags) and from fans. In Falcon, it's just Kraus and he isn't even trying. The manuals don't do the job any better either, though the Dash-1 by Red Dog is close.
Your best option would be either posting in the forums or flying with someone who can tutor you. Sadly, the SimHQ F4 sub-forum seems a bit quiet but you can always go to the official BMS forums, but then you have to sift through 19 replies to get to that 1 useful reply.
As you say, this sim is impressive but updating the "tools" for learning it have been given a lower priority.
