    Fly Engravity Mip - gear lever - gear goes up or down on its own....

    Hi,
    I have a Fly Engravity Mip, CPFlightPro MCP and I use prosim737 to run the gauges.
    I am now encountering a problem I have not seen before.
    The gear will go up or down by itself, obviously the gear lever stays where it is but several times during a flight the wheels will come down or go up on their own with no input from me. This is making a mess of my FsPassengers flights........
    I suspect it is either some dodgy wiring or a problem with Prosim737 taking control.
    But if it is one of those problems why have I been flying without any issues up to now.?
    Any ideas.?
    Allan.

    Hi Allen,

    To determine this problem, I suggest the following:

    1-Disconnect the Gear lever connectors from your I/O board, fly fore a while and see if it happens again.
    If not, there is a problem whit your wiring/switches what causes this behavior.
    2-Are there other inputs i.e. your keyboard that pushes the "G" button?
    3-Remove the gear lever handle input from the joystick input list in the flightsim settings list, and see whats happening.


    Good luck

    Hi,
    Just to update...
    It was a sticky switch on the gear lever. I put a bit of WD40 on the mechanism and it seems to be working ok now.
