Had two full sorties in the noop 17 yesterday with my sidewinder 2 ffb stick. Both went swimmingly until I touched down and shut the engine down, at which point the ffb on the sidewinder decided that despite my lack of movement to just keep right on shaking as if I was rolling over bumpy dirt clods.

I think the FF tends to remember what was happening sometimes. I don't think it's something we could easily fix - the stick and drivers are old. I have one too but stopped using it recently and went for a non FF Ravcore Javalin.

As RW says taking your hand off it kills the FF anyway so there's a way around it.

I figured it might be an old driver issue, oh well, no worries! I'll just think the old noop is just scared of the mechanics wrench. It really was shaking like a leaf after all.
