Perhaps this is a known issue and the work around is to unplug said joysticks (flight sticks) and simply restart the game.

I mean WHO would actually play 7D2D on anything BUT a keyboard and mouse (for Desktop)?! I only discovered this because I also have X-Plane 10 and 11 purchased from Steam on same box from time to time.

In my case, this is on Linux under Steam. It has been this way for several version back and I might have reported this in the Steam forums but asked on the Discord server where the best place to replace this understandably minor issue (easy to work around).

There are other issues (video post processing) that I will report when I get some more time.

P.S.> Was using this game previous to official Linux port under Wine back in the early days!
