    Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 not working.


    I purchased the $119.00 version.


    I have a Dell XPS 15 7590.

    Intel i7-9750H CPU - 2.60GHz - 6 Core - 12MB Cache.

    RAM: 32 GB DDR4-2666MHz

    GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 4GB GDDR5

    Hard Drive: 1 TB over 700 GB free


    When I start up the program it's as if the pane is dropped onto the runway and starts down the runway at full power without me doing anything other than click FLY at a specified airport that I've picked.


    I can't control the aircrafts ailerons roll, elevator pitch or rudders yaw.


    I've tried with the Thrustmaster T.Flight Hotas Joystick, Keyboard and Mouse.


    The only thing that seems to work is the Hat Switch for viewing out the window as the plane continues to fly straight ahead on its own ... ???


    I've uploaded drivers for both the Thrustmaster and the latest Nvidia GPU.


    Why is this not working ?
