I can't raise the gear on my P40. New installation, have accusim installed and several of your aircraft. Tried everything.

Hi,

and welcome to the community. How are you retracting the gear? On the P-40 you need to raise the gear lever to up and then activate the electric hydraulic pump by pressing the center button on the stick. Or wobble the lever on the right side of the cockpit which runs the manual hydraulic pump.

If that’s not working try to see if you have hydraulic fluid in the plane. Shift+4 will tell you that. And the last option would be to go into your maintenance hangar (shift+7) and see what your mechanic has to say.

Happy flying

PS: I assume you ran the latest update?

Also, you can "cheat" by activating the Auto Hydraulic Pump feature in the Shift+3 menu. This is a work-around for the cursor action of pushing the hydraulics contact button on the VC's control stick during flight.

Or you assign a button on your joystick/keyboard via the A2A input configurator. Very handy.
